Many breadwinners in the rural and mountainous areas of Sri Lanka are day laborers. Work is scarce and many of these low-income families are living on a survival mode, which has a direct impact on their children.
Following requests from the community, Cherith started a program to provide monthly educational support for less privileged schoolchildren, thus igniting their potential and creating opportunities for a better future. More than thirty needy schoolchildren in various districts of Sri Lanka are receiving support, thanks to generous donors.
