Srilankan Hope For Children
School trips, nice playgrounds and education seem to be so common in the life of many children. Unfortunately, not every child is granted the opportunity to develop as they should in Sri Lanka. The Dutch foundation Srilankan Hope For Children is committed to helping schools and homes improve their livelihoods by investing in educational facilities of their children, building secure shelters and provide them with resources to help improve their literacy and provide recreational activities. Children have the right to be given an opportunity to shape their future, to have dreams and to get inspired by positivity. Why would these chances not be granted to them?
The LC Supports Foundation decided to support Srilankan Hope For Children by donating a total of €20,000 euros (€5,000 euros a year) since 2016. Every year our donation is spent on
- Educational materials and computers
- Playgrounds and toys
- School trips
- Transportation to bring children to school
Green Heart donation
Additionally, via the so-called Green Heart Campaign 2018, initiated by LC Packaging, a further €1,264 has been donated. This money was specifically spent on the renovation of a school in Kandy, cleaning, repairing and painting the building, as well as installing showers, so the homeless children can take a shower before class starts. The remaining money was used to purchase school supplies for several schools supported by the foundation, including cupboards in which these supplies can be stored.
