About NLEAP

The National Languages Equality Advancement Project (NLEAP) aims to reduce poverty and improve economic and social equality of Sinhala and Tamil speaking women and men throughout Sri Lanka by strengthening the implementation of the Sri Lankan Official Languages Policy (OLP) and enhancing acceptance by Sri Lankan women and men of the cultural diversity in the country. NLEAP builds off the success of the National Languages Project (NLP).

 

Working with the Government of Sri Lanka and civil society organizations, the project will: strengthen gender-sensitive bilingual communication skills of public servants; improve the capacity of key ministries to deliver public services in both official languages (Sinhala and Tamil) at national and provincial levels, especially in bilingual communities; increase awareness of language diversity and language rights; and increase the ability of citizens to communicate in the official languages.

 

NLEAP is a Government of Canada supported project designed to respond to the GoSL’s goal to protect and promote the language rights of all its citizens and support and strengthen the OLP implementation with the Ministry of Public Services, Provincial Councils and Local Government and its affiliated institutions. These agencies include the Department of Official Languages (DOL) and the Official Languages Commission (OLC), the National Institute of Language Education and Training (NILET). NLEAP also supports selected universities through the University Grants Commission (UGC).

 

NLEAP is managed and implemented by Alinea International under contract from Global Affairs Canada.

 

 

About NLF

The National Languages Fund (NLF) is administered by NLEAP in coordination with the Ministry. This fund will support a variety of Sri Lankan organizations including women’s and youth groups, to promote language rights towards reconciliation, a better acceptance and appreciation of cultural diversity as a national strength, and the improved capacity of citizens to communicate in the official languages.

 

About NLF
