Sampath's story

Sampath lives in Bentota, Sri Lanka.

The beautiful coastline in this area is a popular holiday location for those visiting Sri Lanka.

In the past, local people would offer their services and goods for sale on the beach to try and earn a living. Sadly, this was often though of as hassle by holidaymakers.

Sampath, and over 250 other men have benefitted from training in customer service skills and are no longer seen as ‘hassle’ by holidaymakers.

This means that Sampath and his colleagues can earn a living for themselves and their families, as well as offering holidaymakers a fantastic service!
