The Railway Track Project

The Railway Track Project was set up in 2016. This project supports up to 40 children living in the slums of Kelaniya to provide extra educational support once a week for English and Maths. They are currently being taught in a local church.

After the initial donations made at start-up, such as desks and chairs, we continue to donate regular communal resources such as stationery, textbooks and examination past papers as needed.

We also sponsor days out for these children. The photograph below, shows a day out in August 2017, where the students watched an educational film, followed by an afternoon in the park with some refreshments.

As part of our annual festival projects, we often donate stationery to these children at Christmas.
