110 school bags with stationary were donated to children of low-income families at Wallikadamulla Sri Siddhartha Vidyalaya, Mabole, Wattala today (26) as part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) project undertaken by Nelum Yaya Foundation.
Nelum Yaya implemented the first phase of the program earlier this year and we donated school shoes for 10 economically challenged children who were identified through the principals of Bhaddatta Secondary School of Mahianganaya Sora Bora Colony, Mahianganaya National School and Arawatta Junior College.
We offer our heartfelt thanks to those who pledged to achieve this task and we pledge to carry this program throughout Sri Lanka.
The project was funded by (Colombo International Container Terminals) CEO Jack Huang and the Dinesh Weerakkody Foundation.
The total number of students in this school is 187. There are 13 teachers and and that does not include teachers for English Language, ICT and Science subjects. On this occasion, we expect the attention of those who are concerned about this in Sri Lanka.
