The construction team in Athulugama is on target and making great progress towards completion. The roof is near completion after slight delays due to continuous rain. We have completed almost 80% of Phase One of the GiveLight Home Orphanage. The rooms are being painted and the interior tiling is being laid. The windows and door frames are being installed.
The design of the bedroom models, industrial kitchen, living and dining room is near completion. Our Orphans selection committee received 70 applications for interviews to select the most eligible and needy children.
Our meeting with the Principal of the local school was more than successful. He agreed to accept all of the children to the local school provided we donate the necessary desks and chairs to accommodate these students. He even volunteered to help implement an after school program to help the new students to cope with the curriculum to assure a smooth transition.
We are on schedule to open the doors to the orphans in Spring 2013.View Sri Lanka Gallery It was an amazing experience to see the project unfold so beautifully and to be so close to completion. However we still need to raise$ 50,000 by December to accomplish this goal. Please consider this project as your year end giving and be a part of something that has a lasting impact for our orphans.
Please donate now! The orphans of Sri Lanka need your support today! Your donation provides more than a roof over their heads, clean water, food and education; it will also give them a sense of belonging, love and happiness. As we have done in our Aceh home, we plan to send all of these children to College. Join us in this noble dream!
