In March this year The TEA Project regenerated an unused classroom space at a rural school in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. Only a few months on and we are happy to see 'The HUB' (*named by the students) is being fully utilised & embraced by both children & staff. The HUB is now a designated space for English learning and a dynamic communal area for students interactive & creative learning. The school is planning more developments to further improve The HUB in the near future. Today we received some positive feedback from pupils about what they think of 'The HUB'.

Today we spent time meeting some of the fantastic local businesses around Kandy, in the Central Province, who have recently pledged their support to the project and joined our fight to empower vulnerable children from poverty.
Our new TEA-boxes are popping up everywhere from ice cream parlours to hostels, patisseries to tattoo parlours ready to accept donations around the city & importantly to raise awareness.
Thanks to Backpack Lanka backpacklanka.com TEA-boxes will soon be visible to travellers & potential volunteers visiting the islands capital of Colombo on the West Coast, Nuwara Eliya in the Highlands & the surf capital of Arugam Bay on the West Coast as well as Kandy in Central.
