IMPACT AND BENEFIT

 

The book project generously launched by the Rotary Club of Stamford together with other Clubs in the UK has resulted in tremendous impact and benefit to underprivileged children and youth who have been able to improve their knowledge of English as a result. Rural Sri Lankans do not have a good knowledge of English. However, English is vital when it comes to enhancing skills, advanced level of studies and finding jobs. As a result of the project rural youth and children who were competent in every respect other than in the use of the English language now have an equal opportunity   to secure their future.

 

The financial impact of this project is enormous and cannot be measured in terms of money alone because it ‘enables’ an entire generation in a very positive manner.  The books will be used over and over again benefiting future generations as well because they were all donated to either Schools or Institutions where they can used repeatedly.
