Mission Statement

The Samanala Valley Foundation-SVS is a family-run charitable organisation that provides various healthcare and educational services. We are privately funded and self-sustaining allowing us to maintain the highest level of quality in all the services we offer. SVS School for English is a family run not for profit social enterprise.


The SVS School for English was initiated to provide all Sri Lankans and foreign expatriates working in the country with the opportunity to further their prospects by learning English. Our school came into being so that they may gain an edge in the local jobs market and seize opportunities that may otherwise be denied, due to a lack of internationally relevant language skills.

The aim is to take Sri Lanka forward to be one of the most erudite newly developing nations on the planet.

The school's ethos is not just to provide education at the lowest possible cost, but also to allow the school to be self-sufficient and self-sustaining so that without further outside investment, the school can continue to provide a high level of education. Student fees are just 90 rupees (LKR) an hour for a 100-hour course, making it affordable for most prospective local students. In addition, for those who cannot even afford our minimal fees, we offer free scholarships.

The SVS School for English has been a spectacular success, attracting voluntary graduate teaching expertise in a rotation system, from all over the English-speaking world. It is now a highly attested and successful teaching institute in Colombo.
