Sarvodaya-Fusion; the inspiration for eNovation4D

Our inspiration derives from Sarvodaya-Fusion, the leading ICT for Development charity in Sri Lanka. Dr. Harsha Liyanage (principal consultant of eNovation) has founded Fusion, as a specialised arm of Sarvodaya, the 50 year old world renowned leading charity of Sri Lanka.

Key lessons learned from Fusion includes:

  • how to setup an economically sustainable social-enterprise operation, in a donor dependant larger development context,
  • how to introduce ICTs as socially responsible, economically sound, scalable operations,
  • how to integrate Information Technology and Mobile phone technology to traditional, main stream development (agriculture, micro-finance, poverty alleviation etc),
  • how to nurture multi-stakeholder (corporate, state and NGO) partnerships towards project scalability and sustainability.
  • how to ensure healthy social impact.
eNovation4D continues to work in partnership with Sarvodaya-Fusion in this mutually nurturing journey.
