Mallahawa is a small remote village in Bibile, Monaragala. At the moment the children of Mallahawa village have their preschool at the cemetery community center. After the request of the higher authorities of government, we visited the location and witnessed the reality. It was heartbreaking to see them in an inappropriate environment of this nature.
Following the initial fact finding operation, Hemas Outreach Foundation begun construction of its proposed 40th Piyawara community pre-school at Mallahawa, Moneragala. This project is sponsored by Der Touristik Germany and supported by Reiner Meutsch Stiftung FLY & HELP Germany.
The foundation stone of the Monaragala Piyawara community pre-school was laid recently by Ms. Shiromi Masakorala, Executive Director of the Hemas Outreach Foundation along with a student, and construction work is currently undergoing with the aim to open the school in October 2014.
