Karuna Trust 5th Scholarships Awarding Ceremony
We had our 5th scholarships awarding ceremony on the 21st June 2008. Hon. Minister Mr. Karu Jayasuriya was the chief gust and Mrs. Nancy Fitzgerald of US was there as the gust of honor. We had the function at Ananda
College, Colombo. We gave all these children a school bag full of books and stationary, including a Malalasekara Dictionary. Also we gave them Rs. 1000/= each for their traveling.
This year we have selected 160 deserving students to give scholaships and out of that 86 are orphans. Now the total number of students that we are sponsoring is 469 and out of that 146 are orphans. We continue these
scholarships for 08 years till they complete their GCE Advance Level Exam.
We are spending Rs.307500/= per month on these children. We thank our distinguished sponsors who have given their hands to help these needy students.
