Horizon Lanka’s computers are more than 3 years old and some of them need to be repaired. Since we are having a challenge in finding funds within the village at this moment, we need your support. If our computers are repaired we can provide education for more students. Enrolling more students will also help us to sustain the project. With the broken computers we have now, we find it difficult to provide a sound computer education to the students in Mahavilachchiya. A couple from the United Kingdom, Mr Ananda Sirisena and Mrs Subadra Sirisena donated 25,000 LKR to lay electricity wires to the computer lab. Earlier we had laid the wires to one part of the lab only. We hope more well-wishers will help us to repair the computers as well. You can either donate the full amount or part of the amount from the budget given. Please visit http://www.horizonlanka.net/sustainability/computer_repairs/index.html for budget details

The parents of Gavinash Sirisena, the volunteer from the United Kingdom who worked at Horizon Lanka in May 2009, Mr. Ananda Sirisena and Mrs. Subadra Sirisena visited Horizon Lanka on August 28 & 29, 2009. They spent two days in Mahavilachchiya. Mrs Sirisena, a professional teacher in UK, also did an English lesson to the students of Horizon Lanka Academy. The couple also donated English dictionaries to Horizon Lanka, Thakshila Public School and Sri Mihindu Dhamma School in the village. Horizon Lanka thanks Sirisena family for their generous contribution to Horizon Lanka.
Horizon Lanka Foundation got the first foreign volunteer from AIESEC in August 2009 onwards for a period of three months. AIESEC’s Sri Lanka Chapter helped getting us Miss Veronika Betakova, an undergraduate from the Czech Republic to volunteer at Horizon Lanka. Miss Veronika will be doing a strategic analysis about Horizon Lanka and prepare a business plan for the organization. She is also teaching English to the students in the village.
