This Association has been established as an educational-social Society with an aim of exchange with each other of theoretical and practical know-how, skill and experience and refinement. It includes Sri Lankans who have acquired an educational degree(s) from Australian universities which was funded by Australian Government. This association aims to assist in nation building and development by providing service, co-operation and consultation in the economic, social and community development of Sri Lanka thereby inputting dynamism and forwardness in its overall development activity.
Australia Awards Alumni Associations in South Asia aim to reach and engage all Australia Awards alumni in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Each association seeks to strengthen the bonds that alumni established during their time in Australia. Although the starting point is to establish alumni associations and networks in each country, the longer term goal is to foster alumni links across the region and with Australia. This regional connection will be driven by the associations in each country.
