E.A.S.E. Foundation report for August 2022

GlobalGiving is currently our most valuable partner.  Donor contributions facilitated through GlobalGiving keeps E.A.S.E. Foundation thriving during these dark days.  In addition to the many difficulties experienced by many countries we here in Sri Lanka are suffering the consequences of alleged gross mismanagement by the  government. Since our conditions are well known globally I will not belabor the point. I am happy that GlobalGiving fundraising has enabled us to continue our services to the people we serve - , children with disabilities and their families. Our families who experience economic difficulties during the best of times are especially hard hit these days.

From April on country wide economic distress meant schools were often closed. Travel to school for staff and students became extremely difficult due to shortage of petrol and diesel. All schools were closed. So we went back to online classes, staff meetings via zoom and talking to parents by phone.

On a positive note when the schools were open however briefly we were able to enroll a few new students.  As people get to know about our positive approach to disability and our successful teaching methods they bring their children to us.   

17 year old Deep, a non-speaking teen with autism, came to us with a reputation for aggressive and non-compliant behaviors as well as an apparent total inability to learn.  We have only had two sessions with him where he settled in happily to a exciting slightly challenging academic program with a teacher trained to turn him away from his former aggresive behaviors gently.  The family is amazed and we are happy at how easily he settled in. 

Little Nalika is a cheerful addition to our student body.  She loves music loves to dance,  We are working on her reading skills and feel her interest in books will help her learn quickly.  

Many thanks to GlobalGiving for its fundraising efforts Because of generous donors like you who contribute through GlobalGiving we have been able to nurture our students and help their families survive.
