Donation of Schoolbags, Books, Stationery & Shoes for 2016
Karuna Trust for the 6th continuous years gave schoolbags, books, stationery and shoes for the needy students. In this year we selected 796 needy students from very remote villages in Thissamaharamaya, Vavuniya South, Deraniyagala, Kalawana and Gampaha. The cost of the package that we gave to each student was SLR 3650.00. The total cost of the project with traveling and refreshment to the students was SLR 2,955,400.00.
From the inception of this program Mr. Wimal Rupasinghe, the Managing Derector of Srinko Enterprises (Pvt.) Ltd. gifted the required number of schoolbags without any hesitation. Also Mr. Nandadasa Rajapaksha, the Chairman of D. Samson & Sons (Pvt.) Ltd., gave us a special discount for the shoes that we bought from the company. The chairman of Yes Foundation in Thissamaharamaya and the Divisional Secretary of Vavuniya South help us in selecting the needy students and in organizing the functions. We thank all of them.
