Manique Gunaratne together with Madura Dassanayake took another initiative to support entrepreneurs with #disability by providing financial support to Kaveesha Ridmi to expand her business in April 2022. Kaveesha is a young girl with a hearing impairment in Anuradhapura, a remote village in Sri Lanka. Kaveesha is a very hard-working youth with a disability who is trying her level best to support her family. Since both her parents are not there she lives with her grandmother who is very old. All her siblings are hearing impaired and one sister is deaf-blind.
