"To contribute to the health, education and well-being of people in need by thriving their economical, cultural and social norms."

JKS Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides a wide range of services to ensure the positive changes in Jaffna peninsula. The establishment of JKS Foundation initiated with JKS Martial arts school which stands for ‘Jaffna Karate School’ in 2017. After that, JKS institution was started to enhance the education and literacy of school children who cannot afford private classes in Jaffna. Along with the support of JKS students, JKS volunteers was implemented by combining Ratson charity; non-profit organization which has been functioning since 2014. Eventually in April 2020, with the COVID-19 outbreak we expanded our services in health and well-being of the community thus we established the first free private hospital in Jaffna as JKS hospital. With that, JKS became an independent and autonomous organization bearing the name of JKS FOUNDATION.
