Background

Hello, my name is Anushka Jayasekara, Secretary of LIVING THINGS charity. This is a community development project by LIVING THINGS to donate school supplies for Kahatagasyaya Vidyalaya Ampara. We have chosen this school to help because this school lack of many essential recourses and at the same time, parents of these student are unable to provide school supplies to their kids for upcoming year, due to poverty.
Hence, we have planned to donate school supplies including everything they need, to all students in this school for upcoming year. In order to complete this project, it costs LKR. 419,475.00 for school supplies (about LKR. 5,000.00 for a student). I sincerely hope you will support to help these students.

Project

Education is the route out of poverty for many children. It gives them a chance to gain the knowledge and skills needed to improve their lives. For many families the long-term benefits of sending their children to school are outweighed by the immediate need to send them to work or keep them at home to help with chores.

As such LIVING THINGS has planned to donate school supplies to these children for the upcoming year with your valuable support.
