Kulugolla Junior School
The children of this school are very poor. Most parents do not earn enough to supply their children with the necessary school utilities and uniforms. That is why we sponsor these children to go to school.
Kinigama Primary School
Kinigama Primary School is based in Uduwa village, which is part of Gallegedere town. Uduwa is a small village that is close to rubberestates. There are many rubbertappers in the village, but the tapping business depends on the weather. All tappers have a bad income and no perspective on other possibilities.
So money is an issue. The villagers don’t have enough money to send the children to a good school (in town). The bustickets are already too expensive. Kinigama Primary School needs to be around for the children in the village to get their education. The government doesn’t care too much about this regional school, because it has no political value. The government only pays some staff.
The staff of this school is very motivated and willing to help all the kids. Every year they have a few children with good results on the government exam. Which is the final exam after 11th grade. This means that the children can go to highschool (if they have the money), or find a small job.
