The devastating tsunamis of Dec 2004 hit the coast of Sri Lanka - killing thousands of people, washing homes out to sea, & destroying dozens of schools in the process. Yet Sri Lanka's youth need to continue learning as part of the country's long process to recovery. The renovation of these schools serve to resume the education of students affected by the tsunamis while providing them with a global education to heal the region.
RI is refurbishing schools in Sri Lanka for tsunami-affected youth by securing new walls, building new roofs, upgrading sanitation services, weatherproofing the structures, & furnishing them with school supplies such as desks & chalkboards.
Expansions of the school's buildings allow the schools to accommodate two more classrooms (from 6 to 8) & increased the total floor area by 50%. Classrooms are now weatherproof for the rain with clean sanitation facilities for students to use.
