The operations in this country started in 2016 through the Capability Program in partnership with WHU, the General Management Program. The GMP+3 team co-founded with Sujitha BOOKBRIDGE Bandarawela Learning Center. Followed by that, two other social enterprises were established.
The Country Organization was created in 2018 with the purpose of developing social enterprises in rural areas. Only in 2019 BOOKBRIDGE Sri Lanka was set up as a limited company.
By 2020 the strategic focus of the Country Organization shifted from establishing social enterprises in the area of education for children to higher education for young adults and adults.
The Country Organisation is composed of five independent social enterprises: 1) BOOKBRIDGE Professional Education Center in Bandarawela (est. in 2016 by the GMP+3 team, relaunched in 2020 by GMP+6), 2) Kekirawa Learning Center (est. in 2017 by the Global Social Entrepreneurship Program (GSE2) team in partnership with the University of Basel), Dream Space Academy in Batticaloa (est. in 2018 by the 11th Capability Program team), INSIPRA Learning Center in Pelawatte-Monaragala (est. 2019 by the GMP+5 team) and GROW in Nuwara Eliya (est 2021 by CAP17 team).
