We finally get a school to rebuild

Chamila, who is our lead on the school project has sent this note:


"Re-building What Cannot be Destroyed: Rotary School AID
The Rotary District (RID 3220) has been given the task of rebuilding

22 schools in
Sri Lanka. These schools have in turn been allocated to
clubs in the district. The Rotary Club of Colombo Regency has been
chosen as a lead club and given the duty of reconstructing
Sri Vinayagar Vidyalaya in the Batticaloa
Kaluwanchikudy
District
. It has 468 students.

The time line set by the district requires bill of quantities to

be furnished by the 15th of February and contract award by 1st March.
Foundation laying ceremonies are to be held by at least 15th March,
and completion of schools by at least 1st Dec ( so that it can be
formally handed over to the Ministry of Education).

The final objective is not only to build the school, but to
equip it at
a standard far better than it was prior to the
Tsunami
."

Congrats! At Last there's more hope for the children - the continuity of a child's education after 269 is the 1st step to rehab!
