Gnanam Foundation is the philanthropic organisation established in 2010 co-founded by Subaskaran Allirajah and Prema Subaskaran, named after his mother Gnanambikai Allirajah. The Foundation seeks to empower vulnerable and displaced communities impacted by conflict and climate change to build self-sufficient and sustainable livelihoods through a focus on providing access to healthcare, education, training and housing. The foundation currently operates in Sri Lanka, India, Sudan, Tanzania, Romania, Pakistan and the Philippines. Its work is focused on creating sustainable and self-sufficient communities. The Foundation recently built 150 houses for the underprivileged in Vavuniya and has provided educational support by way of scholarships to children in the northern region.
