Kotiyagala Kanishta School – Construction Stage 1– First Project

Once again, thank you for your enormous support given to Ridma Rayak 2015. As we promised you to help two more rural schools in Sri-Lanka, we are happy to update what we have done so far.
Kotiyagala Kanishta Vidyalaya (KKV) is remote school in Monaragala District. The school provides education for 440 students from year 1 to 11 with 19 teachers.
In 2014 September, when we visited the school for fact finding mission, we were surprised to see the difficulties faced by children and teachers. The parents of most children are farmers who live more than 25Km away from Monaragala Town. We realised those children’s biggest dream is to have a proper education to avoid the tough lifestyle which their parents battle every day.

Out of many support they have requested from the RIDMA Foundation, we selected as Stage 1 to renovate Science Lab Building to resolve below issues;
•    Foil sheet had been laid not on plasterboard. Hence, worn out foil causes to drop foil dust making severe health hazard to children.
•    Unbearable heat due to not having fans and insulation
•    No footpath/paving around the building
•    No electricity
