Education for less fortunate children in Sri Lanka 2017

Update posted by Dilendra Galhena On Dec 24, 2016

Hi Friends,

We have completed the final round of donations for this year. These kids were from rural areas and the slums. We were only able to obtain a limited number of photos this time as there was limited number of organisers on the day. However, more importantly, over the last few weeks, we all have contributed towards providing annual school supplies to a total of 319 children. We will be allocating any future donations towards the managed fund that so we can continue to sustain this worthy cause.

We would like to thank everyone who had been supported this cause over last 5 years. This was also the first time we raised funds through social media. Thanks to all your contributions we were able to donate to 100 children more than last year. Thanks again to everyone for lending manpower, providing transport, offering discounts and spreading the word. We hope it has brought you much content and happiness in knowing that you have made a “HeYuugge” positive impact in these children’s lives.

True Holiday and Christmas spirit is when we give from our hearts to those who need it most. We wish everyone a safe and blessed Christmas and a Happy New year!!!

Dilendra, Hashini & Sudharma

i Everyone,

We are happy to report that the first round of book donations was completed 1st of December. A total of $3720 was collected for the first round which we are all a part of. The funds enabled us to purchase complete sets of yearly school supplies to over 200 students from two schools in Thalawa and Agunakola Palasa. It is made up of all the kids in each school from grade 1 through to 11.

The kids were full of smiles knowing they can come to school next year without worrying about not having books and stationary to use. Parents of these kids expressed their heartfelt gratitude to all of you for helping their kids to continue to study in school. There was a clear a sense of relief as they shared their stories of severe financial hardship and life threatening difficulties they are facing in the farms with wild elephants.

We too would like to thank everyone for joining us with all your generous donations, lending manpower for various tasks, providing transport, offering purchasing discounts and sharing the donations page. All of us should be pleased with our genuine altruistic act to help others in need. As we can see, a small gesture can affect someone’s life more deeply than we may appreciate. Thank you again and hope we all continue to spread good intentions.

Dilendra & Hashini
