The HelpKids Program is Moving Forward!
We have completed our first building with your help!
And we are 75% of the way towards our second building.
Growing up in the dangerous and desperate slums of Sri Lanka’s capital city, Colombo, children aren’t often given the chance to dream big.
HelpKids exists not just as a safe and educational pre-school, but as a centre that provides the building blocks for children to dream again, and the foundation they need to achieve their dreams. Children not only access a quality education, but medical and dental checks, life skills and valuable support from counsellors. HelpKids works not just to strengthen children, but to strengthen families and whole communities.
And in 2017, we began expanding so that we can impact even more futures, for good.
Will you help us get over the line?
Our vision is to build a multi-purpose centre that will enable HelpKids to expand its capacity, run our early childhood program and tuition classes, as well as provide a space for parents, community meetings and offices.
BUILDING ONE: COMPLETED
We would like to say a huge thank you to those who made finishing our first building possible. Our kids, teachers and parents are loving our two new beautiful classrooms.
BUILDING TWO: STARTED
We are also excited to announce that we have started our second building, replacing the temporary structure we have be using (See photo below)! But we need your help to see it completed.
This building will give us 2 more classrooms, a kitchen and offices. Like the first building this will be a pre-fabricated building, one that can be easily relocated elsewhere if the need arises.
“We need $58,766 to complete Stage 2 of this life changing facility. And while we’ve already received some support, we still need to raise 25% ($14,700).
