• My Passions: Located in the township of Okkampitiya, in the city of Monaragala this project aims to assist disadvantaged children and orphans in the area. What is the issue, problem, or challenge? The Auxilium School was established in 1994 to provide education to children who come from low sociol economic backgrounds and orphaned children in the area. There are currently 565 boys and girls who attend this school, for most of these children coming to school is a privilege as they are being given the opportunity to gain an education as opposed to having to go out and work to earn an income How will this project solve this problem? Despite trying to keep school fees to a bare minimum the school has seen high drop out rates as communities struggle to survive. We will alleviate these issues so education becomes more accessible to children providing opportunity for the future. Join our Charity challenge to raise further vital funds, trek through the jungle and get to visit this project!
