Thank you for visiting our website

Our charity was established after the Asian tsunami of 2004. We
initially raised funds to re-build a single school, but have since
gone on to work with nearly 50 schools in Sri Lanka’s Southern Province.

We renovate classrooms and build toilet blocks, libraries, computer
rooms and science labs to name a few. You can see what we are doing by
looking through the project pages and where we are doing them on the
schools pages.

We also support community projects and sponsor children from
disadvantaged backgrounds.

Any money you give us will go directly to Sri Lanka as the Directors
all cover their own admin and travel expenses.
