Amazing! We’re now 65% of the way to achieving our appeal target

Our New Year appeal for the Hakmana School is steadily climbing! Thanks to our amazing and generous donors we are now almost TWO THIRDS of the way to our target of £2,070, which will keep the school running for another year!

It’s a fantastic initiative, embedded in the local community in Hakmana, which beings education to disabled children who either have been prevented from enrolling in mainstream education, or have found mainstream schooling difficult.

Navajeevana is working closely with the social workers from the local government in Hakmana and is working towards a sustainable solution for the school’s continued funding. In the meantime Friends of Navajeevana has been raising money to keep this fantastic resource available to the children in the area.

Thanks for your support!

An update from Sri Lanka

Last week three of our Friends of Navajeevana trustees and I escaped the chilly climes of the UK and spent five days in southern Sri Lanka catching up with the staff and beneficiaries of the amazing disability organisation Navajeevana.

It was a fantastic visit and incredibly rewarding to meet some of the disabled people who – with your continued support – we have been able to help over the last three years. I wanted to share a few of the highlights with you, and hope that I can inspire you in the same way that Navajeevana inspired me last week about their incredible work.
