This is Prasadi Manel with her mother and daughter. Prasadi is a pre school teacher who runs the Montisori at her village of Karagahagedara near Kurunegala. Her daughter is currently studying and hopes to sit for her O levels at the end of 2020.
Prasadi has been a single mother since her husband left 10 years ago, and shares the room below in her brothers house, with her mother and also her daughter.
Prasadi has a 10 perch block of land and we are aiming to build her a house to accommodate her together with her mother and daughter.
The families featured above are currently next in line for funding from your kind donations. Whilst we are delighted to receive sponsorship for a particular family from a single donor, we appreciate that we are not all able to donate as much as we would like at a given point in time. Donations of any size are more than welcome, and we are currently allocating pooled donations to fund the construction of a house for Prasadi and her family. When and if the amount you donate takes us ‘over the top’ for Prasadi’s family appeal, we’ll automatically allocate the balance to the next family in line waiting for assistance.
If you would like to make a more substantial donation (for example, the entire cost of a house), please contact us to confirm the donation status of the families featured above or inquire about the next available family.
Whatever you decide, the poor families appearing on these pages will be extremely grateful for any help you can spare.
The cost of building a house at current exchange rates is approx $6000.00
If you are able to travel, we encourage you to attend the opening ceremony for your family’s house. We can advise how long construction is likely to take, and Fr Dilan will personally meet with you to introduce you to the family you have helped, and show you the house you have built.
See our “A word from past donors / sponsors” page for comments from people who have donated, and been able to make the trip to open their family’s new house.
* as at July 2020 – exchange and constructions rates are liable to change, and this estimate may be updated from time to time.
