Roshan Mahanama to Build a Piyawara Community Preschool in Veheratanna

18 Nov, 2013

Veherathanna is a small rural village located off Kabathigollewa and south of Mullathivu. The local community was forced to flee the village during the war. They have now come back and begun to resettle in their lands without any proper infrastructure. This little village has nearly 136 pre-school children all of whom lack basic facilities for education. Our Honorary Brand Ambassador Mr. Roshan Mahanama has come forward to build the 39th Piyawara Community Pre-School with his personal funds. The foundation ceremony was held on 16th November 2013 in the presence of Hon. Minister of Child Development Mr. Tissa Karaliadda. Mrs. Maureen Enderby, the wife of the Deputy CEO also joined this event. The Sri Lanka Army’s 62 Division has offered its assistance to build the school. We hope to finish construction of this school by March 2014 and make a difference to the lives of this innocent children.
