INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT IN NORTH & EAST SRI LANKA
OBA VENUWEN API
This project aims to fast track and support urgent requirements of educational material and related items for school children in the northern and eastern districts of Sri Lanka.
The requirements that range from, stationary, buildings, lab equipment, power sets, school furniture, sanitation for schools, etc are collected from donors and well wishers throughout our nation and also from charitable friends in the international community. One of the primary objectives of this program is to take upon the responsibility of caring for the youth of the nation, rather than wait for the state sector to intervene and contribute.
Since the liberation from the clutches of terrorism the eastern province has seen a ray of light, hopes for a better life and free education. These war torn areas currently in the process of rebuilding and re-starting their lives are in much need for these materials. It is Namal’s belief that “the privileged” need to come forward and support fellow brothers and sisters in providing these basic requirements needed for education and enable them to face the various challenges that globalization brings forth. A sticker campaign aimed at raising funds for this cause is currently in the running and is promising to be a success.

With the launch of this project, Tharunyata Hetak plans to create a business model which will attract buyers from international markets providing these self employed craftsmen an arena in which they will be able to sell their products Through this project Namal hopes to not only present a solution to these distressed and uprooted craftsmen but to give them an additional advantage in their market.
