Pacific Prime's Third School in Kammandaluwa, Sri Lanka
After completion of the school in Laos, it became clear that more communities needed help. We worked closely with the Room to Read charity to raise enough money to help build a third school in a village in Sri Lanka called Kammandaluwa.
This village is located in the North Western Province and many people in the area work as rice farmers. There was a school previously in place that was originally constructed by the parents in the community. This did not offer a good learning environment as there was a lack of shelter from the rain, as well as no external walls.
Pacific Prime funding the completion of this school means that the children in the village can have a proper education with desks, chairs and chalkboards, as well as educational materials. This school has 269 students, 12 teachers and educates children from grade 1 – 11.
Pacific Prime wants to continue to work with Room to Read and aims to raise money to help build a fourth school in 2013. Read more about our project here.
