The Village Nursery School

On our second visit to the Village after the Tsunami, we were introduced to the Nursery School by one of the fishermen whose daughter went there.

The school is supported by the Mount Lavinia Hotel who pay the teachers. Friends of Della and Don supplies toys, books, crayons and drawing materials as well as a daily nutritious meal for all the children every day.

Provide a daily meal

Each day, we provide he children with a meal so that they can concentrate in the otherwise dilapidated surroundings.  We’re currently working hard with the hotel and others to help identify a better location for the school.

Provide educational games

The two teachers provide a fantastic introduction to learning and the kids enjoy singing for us.  We provide educational games and toys to encourage learning and have a great deal of fun just playing with them!

Provide shoes and socks

These kids are from the poorest fishing village and we’ve been surprised by how many have turned up without shies or socks.  So each year, thanks to your kindness, we make sure that each child receives a new pair of shoes and socks at least once a year.
