NY Sri Lankan Friendship Montessory
It is a school for small children whose parents live in “border line” villages under terrorist threat in Sri Lanka due to the ongoing terrorist problems there. The parents want a safe haven for the children while they are out at work in the fields. This school provides the children with the security necessary, as well as a good educational foundation, thus raising well-balanced and intelligent children. They need funds for buildings, maintenance, furniture, supplies, feeding program and salaries for the teachers. Funded in 2007.
