About this project
Horizon Lanka Foundation (http://www.horizonlanka.org) in Sri Lanka had to suspend activities in all seven Horizon Academies (http://www.horizonacademy.lk) in mid-March, 2020 in lieu of the Sri Lankan government regulations, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The government is likely to relax the regulations for all academic institutions, schools, and universities very soon. We urgently need funding to continue the activities of the organization in a reduced number of academies.
Our plan is to reduce the number of academies from 7 to just 3, as it is not possible to secure funding for all 7 academies under the prevailing conditions.
Horizon Lanka Foundation is a Government registered non-profit organization and relies on funding from the Sri Lankan Diaspora for its day to day operations. But with the present situation in the world, they can barely keep their commitments anymore, therefore we need new donors' support to continue our work to teach English and IT (Computers) to the underprivileged children in at least 3 rural villages in Sri Lanka where we have Horizon Academies, namely, Ralapanawa (Anuradhapura District,) Kirimetiya (Nuwara Eliya District) and Maniyanthoddam (Jaffna District.) In Ralapanawa all the students are from the Sinhala community, while in Kirimetiya they are from the Tea-estate (Indian) Tamil community and in Maniyanthoddam from Sri Lankan Tamil community. We purposely selected these three academies to work with underprivileged children of the three ethnic groups in Sri Lanka. We are looking for a village where Muslim children will be the majority to start a fourth Horizon Academy, but at present, we have not come across one as yet.
