Current Beneficiaries around Sri Lanka

Carmel Pre-School- Vavuniya

The beneficiary that SLCF supports in Vavuniya is Carmel Pre-School located in Pampaimadhu Vavuniya, in 10KM distance from the Vavuniya town. This is a mixed nursey that serves around 40 children from various communities. As the school is located in far distance from the town this school does not have access to basic and necessary resources and lacks in basic school facilities. The school is managed by two nuns. One is Rev Sister Roche Theresilda who was one of our primary contacts of one of our beneficiaries Acthuvaley Convent of Our Lady Lanka.  The management receives Rs. 15,000 from the government on a monthly basis equivalent to £75. But this fund is only enough for electricity, water, food, medical and day to day activities and there are no excess funds to invest back into children’s education or other school welfare. Majority of the parents are single or some children have no parents and brought up by their grandparents. The only hope of the parents to give a good roust education for their children and see them prosper in their future lives.

SLCF has taken initiative to support this school by providing support to develop skills, and supporting with infra structure to build a kitchen.
