Awareness Seminars

Posted on by Tharindu

This January, we held IT awareness seminars for the MCCC at Osuwinna, Ranminithena and Uduwila Schools.

The sessions target grade nine students and their parents, explaining why IT is such an important subject to study either for O-levels or by attending a course at the centre.

These are all rural schools and nearly all the parents have farming backgrounds so computers do not feature in their day-to-day lives in the way that there are likely to for their children when they join the workforce.

Student Sponsorship

DSC_9948SRI would like to extend a big thank you to Alex Hayes-Griffin and Michaela Frickleton for their annual sponsorship of 10 students in the Hambantota educational zone.

All the students that Alex and Michaela are supporting come from low income families and have to face additional challenges ranging from educational to medical.
