Child Action Lanka – Sri Lanka
In 2015 PKCF assisted with a grant to help with the purchase of land and premises for the Nuwara Eliya Project, thus providing a more stable environment.
Nuwara Eliya is in the Hill Country of Sri Lanka, the highest point of the country and dominated by agricultural land. Previously this CAL Centre had been using converted connex classrooms out of necessity, as they were sometimes required to move due to difficulties with landlords.
The Centre educates children of land labourers through academic and talent-based approaches, to bring out the best in them and help them to believe in a better future. The Centre is planning computer classes for school leavers as well as vocational training courses. With the hard work of the staff and children, we believe this centre is giving these children a bright future in which they will be able to serve their communities and prosper.
