Description:
The pandemic has caused school education to proceed via online learning. Sadly, many families across Sri Lanka do not have the required income to buy such luxuries, and are facing difficulties in providing for their children’s education. Some families borrow phones from their neighbors, paying a sum of Rs.200 for an hour of usage, while many children have been made to give up on their education due to the absence of this present necessity. As the pandemic situation continues with the uncertainty surrounding the situation normalizing, these children face the dire need of receiving a smartphone for them to continue their education. Therefore, as the first phase of this initiative, we have selected 50 children that are reading for their G.C.E Ordinary Level examination, this year.

Transparency:
We are committed to complete transparency. A detailed report will be submitted at the completion of each cause. Bank charges of 2.5% incurred for credit/debit card transactions has been added to the total value of the cause.
