One of the first few students we sponsored was a boy named Thilina from Thissamaharama, who had completed his scholarship exam at the time. We got to know about him through a friend who was a sales person deployed in the area. He was from a family of four, his father was a Taylor and mother was at home. Although he had the will and the ability to study but the financial issues were stopping him from continuing on. We supported him financially and often sent him school supplies to carry on with his studies. We were in touch with the principal at his school, monitoring his progress as often as we could. He got through his ordinary level exam and continued his Advance level studies in the math’s stream. He entered the Moratuwa University with excellent Advance level results and continued his higher studies in the Computer Science stream. He completed his internship at hSenid during his final year and joined another organisation after he completed his studies. The only request we had for him was to help another child in need to succeed in his/her studies, much like he did.
