• THE COUNTRY OF SRI LANKA

WELCOME TO SRI LANKA

“Sri Lanka is an island that everyone loves at some level inside themselves. A very special island that travellers, from Sinbad to Marco Polo*, dreamed about. A place where the contours of the land itself form a kind of sinewy poetry.” Romesh Gunesekera

* Marco Polo described Sri Lanka as “the finest island of its size in all the world.”

Why do Sri Lankan children need our help

The Proporta Education Foundation (PEF) was established in 2008 out of a desire to help talented Sri Lankan children from poor families to remain in education.

While schooling is officially free in Sri Lanka, things such as books, pens, paper, uniforms, as well as transport, are not free.

If a family cannot cover these extra costs, it can mean that their child (or children) is unable to continue with formal schooling.

Meet the classes

With your help, we will be able to help more children in more areas next year.
