I am pleased to advise that we have secured funding for our Little
Acknowledgement & Progress Report – Kayts Project – 16 OCTOBER 2016 Funded By: Shri Kanagathurkaiamman
Little Aid is a registered charity set up on 18th May 2009, when the conflict in Sri Lanka had ended and many people were displaced from their homes, had lost their families, and lacked basic needs such as food, clothes and shelter. The name Little Aid came from the idea that even the smallest donation could help someone in need. We helped to provide these needs as well as rehabilitate people. Since then Little Aid has expanded to work with local organisations in need of support, to rebuild communities in the poorest parts of Sri Lanka. This includes providing useful medicines to local hospitals, operating computer centres for children, providing educational materials such as books to underfunded schools, sponsoring children in education at poorer schools for basic needs such as food, building a well for a fishing community, and many more. We are proud to work with different organisations, different religions, and ethnic backgrounds, bringing people together from all walks of life to help people who are most in need in Sri Lanka. We closely work with following charities. #. Books Abroad - Scotland #. Medical Aid - Denmark #. Shri Kanaga Amman Temple - Ealing - UK #. Sri Katpaga Vinayagar Temple - Walthamstow - UK
little aid run a school in a village in Killinochchi in the north east of Sri Lanka. Our Kilinochchi Centre educates over 100 students at any point of time throughout the year. We run free computing classes and English language classes and sometimes sewing class for adults who are below the poverty line. These classes teach skills and give qualifications to help people get jobs. Christ House Children Centre, Kayts, in North Sri Lanka is a boarding school which we provide funding for. There are 60 children who attend St. Anthony's College, Kayts. We organise funding for their education, books, food and medical needs. These children are often orphans with little or no family support. In addition to that we also provide assistance for any emergency and ad hoc projects/ natural disaster relief, etc...
