Based at Mirissa Harbour, Mirissa Water Sports provides exciting Whale watching, Sports fishing, Sailing, Coastal cruises, Snorkeling and Boating activities for visitors to Southern Sri Lanka where employment opportunities for young people were always extremely limited.
As a consequence of the tsunami, the situation was bad. That is a key reason why Building A Future Foundation has been created by Mr. Pierre Pringiers, Honorary Consul of Belgium to Sri Lanka. Building A future Foundation was launched to bring new ideas, technology and training to help generate employment for the youth from the tsunami affected coastal areas. The whole Building A Future initiative intends to get 50 young people each year into sustainable employment. Mirissa Water Sports is the first employment project of this initiative employing 10 people.
