Project Report | Feb 25, 2024
Focusing on student support

Vanakum, Ayubowan and Hello,

It has been a wonderful start to the year at TLT - and we hope for you all as well.

Despite the A-level exams being delayed once more - which also delays our registrations - all of our five centres are full and the waiting lists are building. Students start the year with two weeks of spoken English and basic grammar through our Intensive English Programme, designed to remove the nerves and reduce those early dropouts that we experienced in the first few years. Then it is onto the Main Diploma. Last week also saw our first Group Service Project, or Shramadana, where all students participated alongside staff to clean public areas and understand that "doing good, feels good".

As I write this, I sit in Kuala Lumpur awaiting my NGO Residency Visa... always a frustrating period of time with the government making things hard due to a historical distrust of the sector. However, I feel comfortable being away from the heart of the action, knowing the exceptional staff we have and that we are seeing the rewards of our policy of only employing graduates and investing in young leaders.

This is the last project report we will send for this page. We still need the support, and are so grateful to everyone who has given and particularly to those who give monthly.

If you give monthly, then your donations will be transferred to our Support a Student, Strengthen a Community page - we will continue to use the funds to help protect the emotional health of our students and their communities through the work we do.

Thank you all so very much, and please do visit Sri Lanka and come for a cup of tea - we would love to show you around.

With best wishes,

Tim
