A success story
In 2006 our Sri-Lankan partner : Futurecare came across a school with 20 kids that had just closed down and was ran by a monk, the Wettheave primary school in Galagedere, Central Province, Sri Lanka. Ramani the founder of FutureCare, started supporting children by collecting money to provide the kids with books, pens, pencils, and other required school materials so that, the poor children could have at least some materials to start school. In the next two years, more and more children started to go to the school and it grew to supporting 50 children. By this time the local government took interest and started to invest in the school again.
The school started doing so well that even the less poor kids started to go there, resulting in more resources coming in and making it a fully self-sustainable school. More over, it does not need any more donations since 2012.
Boost Foundation uses the funds to support our partner FutureCare in Sri-Lanka. FutureCare in turn buys the materials and packs them using volunteers and hands out the packages to the children. Boost Foundation is responsible for management, communication and financial reporting.
Boost Foundation and FutureCare work on a fully voluntary basis and have no overhead costs in this project, besides the bank transfer fees.
