Help Support Rural Pre-schools in Sri Lanka

 

Dear Donors,
This week, GlobalGiving is matching 50% of any donation upto USD 50 per donor, this week. The campaign started today and will end on the 18th of September.
We are seeking your kind assistance for a new project to support Rural Pre-Schools in Sri Lanka. We launched a pilot project last year to support pre-schools in Dehiattakandiya (Ampara District, Eastern Province). We provided a pack of educational, communication and play material worth Rs. 25,000/- each (USD 135 approx.) to 25 pre-schools in Dehiattakandiya. We received a request from Dehiattakandiya to support 65 pre-schools in the area, but we were able to provide the pre-school pack to only 25 pre-schools, last year. The feedback was overwhelming and the pre-school teachers and the kids appreciated this donation very much. The teachers said that the kids wanted to stay back in school after school hours, to work with the items they received. 
We realised that we need to support more pre-schools to overcome the lack of such resources, which are required towards cognitive development of a child. So, we decided that we will provide pre-school items to the balance 40 pre-schools in Dehiattakandiya, end of this year. In order to do this, we seek your kind support.
We request you for a donation between USD 10 - USD 50 and help us reach our target of USD 5,000 or / and help spread the word to your friends and relatives who may want to help us on our endeavor. We make 50% more for every donation we receive upto USD 50.
Your support no doubt will help those economically disadvantaged children to compensate for the deficiencies they face in their home environment, and ultimately help break the inter-generational cycle of poverty in the long term.
Thank you
