For a Good Cause
With the rising cost of living, many people in Sri Lanka find it hard to meet their ends. It is unfortunate to see many drop out from schools and universities due to financial difficulties. A small helping hand for those needed can go a long way since the education is the backbone of any country. It can also be a bridge to increase the mutual understanding between people of different ethnic groups in our country. For the last couple of years, Educate Lanka non-profit organization has been working towards achieving this goal. I'm fortunate to be a part of this effort and help some university students continue their studies. They have a well-managed program and support elementary, secondary and university students. You don't need to be super rich to be a sponsor; all it takes is a few bucks per month. Our collective effort can make a difference!
