Pahala Galkandegama School
The Donate For Dreams members visited the Pahala Galkandegama Vidyalaya Punewa in Medawachchiya, Sri Lanka. Located near the northern province of Sri Lanka, Medawachiya was a village on the border during the civil war. The Sri Lankan Civil War lasted for 30 years causing the village to be delayed in development. The team went to the school and provided school supplies and clothing. Near the end of their visit, they presented a new water tank to store purified water for the students to use.
The Donate For Dreams members visited Gamunu Montessori in Galkiriyagama, Sri Lanka. The livelihood of a lot of people near the area is farming. Most parents don’t send their kids to school because they think it’s unnecessary; most kids grow up to be farmers. Prior to the tour, the team raised money to renovate the school. They were able to buy new desks, chairs, and provide money to repaint the school. The students prepared a showcase featuring dances and poems. The former students performed a traditional Sri Lankan dance.
