Our Projects

The Child Lanka Library Project

Childlanka organisations’ next venture is to build a library in Medaoya school in Mahiyangana, Sri Lanka. A significant amount of funds were raised for the bringing of this venture through such events as a Sri Lankan Dinner Dance, a food fair held in Chiswick but most importantly, the kind donations given through the general public and Childlanka members. A proposed raffle draw will also be taking place in March 2011 to satisfy the funds required to complete this library project.

The overall project is organised and will be overseen by Medaoya school’s vice principle, Venerable Rahula Thero and the Head of Medaoya temple, Venerable Sarananda Thero.

The main purpose for the construction of this library is to build up a greater sense of educational responsibility within the village especially to the younger generations residing in Medaoya and the surrounding villages. Our generosity will aid in reducing poverty especially children, in our beautiful motherland. With the completion of this library, we can secure the future of these children and generations to come by helping their education and essentially giving them a better standard of living.

Monaragala Projects

Monaragala is one of the most under-developed districts in Sri Lanka, where the most number of malnourished children live, and the per-capita income and the literacy rate is the lowest in the whole island, and making matters worse, it also has the highest number of school drop-outs in the country. Surprisingly, there are children who cope up with all this obstacles and come to school, hungry for knowledge and education. It is heartening to know that a group of patriotic Sri Lankans, living in U.K. have got together and initiated a project to offer a helping hand to some of these needy children.

Namely, it is CHILD LANKA ORGANISATION. It has succeeded, up to now, in awarding 33 scholarships to selected school children, worth Rs.1000 a month, from year 6 up to A/L classes. The selection of children for this program is done by a committee comprising of the principles, Gramasevakas (village heads), village priest and a representative of Child Lanka. They closely monitor the progress of the children and financial status of the family to decide on continuation of the grant.

Here in U.K. CHILD LANKA, organises Dinners, Coffee Evenings and other social events to raise funds, solely for the above cause. Apart from this, a great number of kindhearted people have come forward to sponsor children through out their school carrier.

You also could be a part of this worthy cause by donating as little as £5.00 each month to one of the children of mother Lanka, to carry on their education and become learned members of the society and make a name not only in Sri Lanka but in the whole world. Please contact childlanka@hotmail.com for more information.
