A Tuition Centre for Delft Island, Sri Lanka
Delft Island has 1500 children in need of an education. There are very few facilities in the area and many have no schooling at all. A Christian Organisation called "Assembly of God" will provide freely this building and 35 perches of land in order to establish a tuition centre. It will need computers and desks and chairs, and educational resources, including exercise and text books, whiteboards, playground, etc. Nearby there is one certified computer training teacher, but three more tutors (for English, Maths and Science) will have to travel from Jaffna at least twice a week. To set this up initially would cost about 25,000 for the first year and 5,000 for each following year to run. If you or your school/ organisation feel you can fund this very worthwhile project, please email Bob Uppington (Chair of Trustees, SHIVA Charity) at shivanepal@yahoo.com
