4 of the schools implementing Tacugama’s education programme (TKEEP) – Logos, R.E.C, Saio and Church of Christ, were greatly affected by the landslide that unfolded on August 14th. Tragedy struck harder at 2 of the schools, Logos and R.E.C., which combined lost over 40 students. In total, 60 kids perished and many more are still unaccounted for.
On Monday Nov 13th, we provided full scholarships to 44 orphaned TKEEP kids and we are committed to continue covering their school fees on an annual basis. In the next few weeks, we plan on helping 50 additional kids by providing them with shoes and school uniforms.
Thanks to everyone that donated, we couldn’t have done it without your generous contributions!
