Assistance for children with disabilities and school drop-outs

Under a project supported by Kindermission of Germany, a group of 50 children with disabilities are being provided with transport facilities to attend a special school in the Vanni on a daily basis. They are also given nutritional food packs every month. In addition, 112 school children studying in Grades 5 – 9 are assisted to attend extra classes for their educational advancement, while a group of 25 women in the Vanni have been granted livelihood support after undergoing vocational training in their chosen fields.

In Mannar, under the same project, 113 school children studying in Grades 5-11 are similarly assisted to attend extra classes, while 31 women have taken up livelihood activities, accompanied by suitable vocational training.
