£957raised of £750 target by 20 supporters

    Weʼve raised £957 to help fund the Sea Street Project and Street School in St Marys - Negombo, Sri Lanka

    Colombo, Western Province, Sri Lanka
    Funded on Wednesday, 4th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Tucked behind the Vegetable Market in Negombo live 15 families. Their homes are wooden shacks and most have no electricity or sanitation. Children, men and women all share one tap for all their washing and cooking needs. It's rubbish!

    £300 will provide the bricks and materials to build a home for each family. Once built, they can get electricity fitted. The children can sleep on beds.

    In a stable home, the children can then attend the St Mary's Street School, and get an education. With an education - their lives get instantly better.

    A group of friends are driving tuk tuks around Sri Lanka in September raising money for the Sea Street project and School. Details of their adventure can be found here:

    None of your donation will go on the trip - it ALL goes to the projects xx

        Recommended by Sarah who got to see your project in Sri Lanka. It's been a while since I went, but can remember the conditi some families have to live in. Good luck and all the best for your project!

        Education is something we take for granted and forget how others struggle for the facilities or even the right to learn. I wish you success and applaud your hard work.
