Sri Lanka is a developing country and Australia and Sri Lanka are friends for long time. It is sadden to see  many people are in below the poverty line in  this beautiful country. Per capita income is around US4400 per annum.

When I was in Sri Lanka I had opportunity to teach one of the schools in Hambantota district as science and math teacher from 1979 to 1982.Most children in this school are from disadvantaged families with poor income. Recently I was contacted by the principal of H/Bowala Vidyalaya ,Walasmulla to assist them with providing computer facilities to the school as their computer is out of order with no replacement. They have computer teacher but without computer facilities available in the school. 

We would like to bring kind attention of Hon Prime Minister for helping this school under its overseas development program. I also ask principle to make a school development plan to collect donations from well wishes. They were asked to establish a bank account for receiving donations from well-wishers. We are targeting $20,000 to be collected for developing computer facilities in the school. Your donation will empower poor people to get their human rights -education.
