Development of school facilities 

Under this program we have build several school buildings and other facilities at deserving schools.

  • Mavita Junior School building. A two story building with six classrooms for Mavita Junior School at a cost of US$.26000.00. Mavita is an underprivileged village, 65 km away from the main city of Galle in the foothills of Sinharaja Forest. This school is one of the oldest schools in the district and it has being neglected, mostly due to the very poor economy of this village. Most of the villages work in tea estates and get a daily wage of $.1.75.
