Description:

This is a request for school supplies from 137 daily wage plantation worker children whose families cannot afford to buy school supplies for their children, from the Blairlomond Estate, Uda Pussellawa, Nuwara Eliya. Many children drop out of school and go to Colombo and other cities to work, as they need to help support their families. The number of children left to sit for their O/L’s at least are very low.

Below are their requirements. Please support.

Exercise books – 1370 (10 x137) × Rs. 120 = Rs. 164,400

School Bags – 137 x Rs. 1,390 = Rs. 190,430

Shoes – 137 x Rs. 1,490 = Rs. 204,130
