Akurata Sawiya- Scholarship programme

During 2019, we continued the programme introduced in the Moneragala district in 2017 to provide relief to school children of families living under the poverty line. Paving the way for 1,000 poor children to dream of a proper education and a brighter future, we granted 1,000 children in grades 5, 6 and 7 with Rs. 1,500/- every month until they complete their Advanced Level (A/L) examinations, thereby easing the burden on their parents and giving them a solid platform to remain in school till they complete their A/Ls. Progress of these children are monitored regularly through their schools.
