Pattiwela Primary School is a rural village in the Matale District. The School provides education to around 250 children in the Galewela area. Most current Children come from very poor backgrounds. We found that some children have both their parents abroad, leaving the children in the care of relatives. Other parents work as laborers earning a meagre living, not sufficient to even feed the children.
We found that almost all the children in the school are in need of basic educational needs such as books, bags, shoes and school uniform items. Principal of the school sent us a list of current requirements and under this project we wish to support them by supplying the items. We estimate these basic needs can be met by collecting £1500. Our volunteers in Sri Lanka are talking to the manufacturers of school bags and shoes etc to get them at favourable rates.
Our core team of volunteers are actively raising funds for this project currently. In addition to the basic needs we also plan to send them sports items as a shipment from the UK. You too can join in by contributing money, volunteering with services or introducing contacts in Sri Lanka who could supply or transport these items to the school.
