Department of Education Duplo Machine

Posted on by Jackie

This donation followed a request from the Zonal Director of Education, Mr Piyasena. Mark and I had spent a fair amount of time at his office in Hambantota, discussing which schools we might help and we always enjoy meeting him because he is so straightforward in dispensing advice.

The Zonal office is always a hub of activity, but we noticed that its facilities are fairly limited. We could, for example, only see two computers in the entire building.

And we thought the donation of a duplo machine made a lot of sense. Many of the region’s principals visited the offices but there was nothing for them to photocopy en masse all the papers and manuals they needed to do their jobs properly.
