Project Report | Oct 17, 2022
Thank you and an Update

By Suranjani Wickremeratne | President - Tarana Foundation

Dear Donors,

Firstly let me thank you for your kind generosity towards our project to support rural schools to face covid-19 Challenges.

We have supported many requests from rural schools and the rural students in order to face the challenges emanated from covid-19, since the beginning of this year. Our main focus was to get these students who were facing many challenges back in school. We supported over 2,500 rural school students with their basic school requirements, which cost Rs. 4 million approx.

We have also undertaken to support the following requests during the next couple of months,

1) Dehiattakandiya (Eastern Province) - Prizes to be awarded at the Inter-School General Knowledge Quiz held for students in Dehiattakandiya Zone (40 schools) to revive their interest in education and activate them. These rural students started schooling a couple of months ago, after 3 years of closure due to  Covid-19 situation.  

2) To commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day which fell on the 10th of September and also World Mental Health Day which fell on the 10th of October, our foundation collaborated with the Rural Program of Sri Lanka Sumithrayo, an organisation which focuses on suicide prevention work, to conduct an art competition for 10 rural schools in Lunugamvehera (Southern Province) and 10 rural school in Panduwasnuwara (North-Western Province). The prizes for the winners and a gift of library school books will be made by the foundation upon selection of winners. This is due to be done in November 2022.

Besides, our main focus is on the distribution of school requirements in March 2023. We need USD 20,000 towards this project to support over 2,000 rural children. We have decided to focus on supporting the estate schools in Bandarawela (Central Province), as we have observed the difficulties these estate sector workers have faced during the last couple of years. The current economic crisis has resulted in an increase in prices of basic school requirements over 100%. This burden which has fallen on the parents, will push them to stop sending their children to school and instead, will send them to do odd jobs. We wish to support as many rural students to prevent this happening.  

We hope to promote the Giving Tuesday campaign done by GlobalGiving amongst our donors and well wishers in order to raise funds for our rural schools project in March 2023.

We wish to have your support towards our rural schools project, and would appreciate very much if you can kindly spread the word amongst your friends, colleagues and relatives to support it.

Thank you once again for all your support and may you and your family be blessed abundantly. May all your noble aspirations be fulfilled.

Best Regards

Tarana Foundation
