Build Their World
“Build Their World 2016” is a welfare/charity project organized by the Sri Lankan Student’s Society (SLSS) of University of Wollongong, Australia. This year, in collaboration with AIESEC Colombo South (University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka), we aim to empower students in rural and remote areas of Sri Lanka by providing them with educational resources; improving their school facilities and equipment, and implementing moral and attitudinal development workshops to supplement their learning, well-being, and future.
The inspiration for this challenging task came from deep within, as we are grateful, privileged, and lucky enough to be provided with the access to proper education, resources, shelter, emotional support, and guidance throughout out our schooling lives in which it has shaped us to who we are today. We are truly in debt for what has been bestowed upon us. Sadly enough, we come to the realization that even to this very day, social-inequality exists.
In unison with AIESEC South Colombo, we want to provide the students of “Godavangoda Kanishta Vidyalaya, Tangalle” with the enduring love, support, and educational resources that will circumvent barriers and thus, give them a pathway to discover and unleash their true potential. We want to show them that they are not alone and that there is still hope. We want to show them the plethora of support bodies and networks available for them. We want to create an environment that is conducive to their education, self-development, safety, and well-being. And most importantly, we want to show them that they are loved.
