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.
