Scholarships are our main project and receive our focused attention. We firmly believe that a good education will pave the way for a better future for underprivileged children. Our goal is to fund deserving students, who achieve satisfactory results, until they have completed their education.

  • In 2023 in Sri Lanka a total of 234 students will receive a scholarship, thanks to the support of all our friends and donors. The students and we are very grateful.

1. On the Original Scholarship Program (started in 2006) will be a total of 66 students from different schools in various districts and provinces in Sri Lanka. 84 students were on this program last year.

They live in a children's home established by the Salvatorian Sisters in the north of the country. In 2023 18 girls will receive scholarship support compared with 21 in 2022.
