Colombo, 1st February 2023 – Futura Tech Labs, an innovator in media broadcasting, mobile, and digital solutions, recently donated mStudio, its flagship radio automation solution, and associated hardware to the Foundation of Goodness, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation engaged in humanitarian empowerment initiatives in Sri Lanka for 24 years.
mStudio is an end-to-end radio automation solution that helps broadcasters manage the entire radio operation, from billing and transmission logging to commercial and music scheduling to delivering the final radio output.
“We are deeply moved by the Foundation of Goodness’s work towards social impact. With this donation, Futura Tech Labs hopes to empower the Foundation to spread positive news worldwide and provide media training to rural youth and schoolchildren. We are confident that this contribution will help the Foundation connect communities and share its good work with a global audience,” said Harsha Purasinghe, CEO of Futura Tech Labs.
This donation will help the Foundation of Goodness launch an online radio channel called “Good News Radio”, which will go live on February 4th at noon for two hours and continue every Saturday, only on their website, unconditionalcompassion.org and via a dedicated mobile app. This donation will also pave the way for the Foundation to begin practical media training for rural children in presenting, news broadcasting, navigating the radio console and software, scheduling music content, and overall media management of a radio station.
“Being good and doing good has been the philosophy behind the Foundation of Goodness. In this journey, we have understood how spreading goodness has impacted many lives – to become better than they used to be. The thought that inspired Harsha Purasinghe to make this one-of-a-kind goodness broadcast for the benefit of future generations will bring blessings in abundance and augur well for our country,” said Kushil Gunasekera, Founder of Foundation of Goodness.
Since its inception in 1999, the Foundation of Goodness has helped rural communities reach their full potential through a variety of initiatives and programs organised under ten sectors: Women’s Empowerment, Enterprise & Business Skills Development, Language & Arts, Special Needs, Sports Development, Mental, Dental & Psychosocial support, Children & Youth, Environment & Water, Rural Welfare & Development and Life Skills & Good Values. The Foundation provides courses and resources free of charge to over 307,000 children and adults in over 900 villages in Sri Lanka through its flagship venue, the ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Seenigama, and 14 Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres spread across the country.
The mStudio suite will help ‘Good News Radio’ manage its assets, schedule its playlists, and broadcast its stream to millions worldwide. mStudio powers all the leading radio networks and channels in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Brunei.
