The foundation stone for the 44th PIYAWARA pre-school was laid in Salalihinigama in Bogaswewa (Vavuniya district) by Hemas Outreach Foundation. The village is extremely underdeveloped with very high levels of poverty. The average income of a family is approximately Rs. 5000/- a month and that too with the bare minimum.
Over 25 children currently receive education in a mud hut which they call their “pre-school”.
The Divisional Secretariat of Vavuniya South has now allocated a 60 perch land in the area to build the PIYAWARA pre-school. The construction of this school will be done by the 56th Division of the Sri Lanka Army under the Security Forces command Wanni.
The school is donated by DER Touristick Germany with the support of Fly and Help. We hope to complete the school by December 2017.
