Roshan Samarawickrama, Programme Manager
I have worked at ECSAT since 2005. At first I worked as an Outreach worker. Since 2006 I was appointed as Programme Manager. As a leader I have to do a complicated job - but most of my work is taken up with fundraising so we can keep offering our services. I have a good team to lead our projects. ECSAT is a happy family. I hope that one day we can help people with disabilities all over Sri Lanka.
