The Chestnut Foundation has continued its mission to provide essential resources to underprivileged children to support their education and help them overcome personal challenges. In February 2023, the foundation proudly awarded students who passed the Grade 5 Scholarship Exam at the Sinhala Maha Vidyalaya in Trincomalee.
The Grade 5 Scholarship Exam is a significant milestone for Sri Lankan students, as it determines their eligibility for government-funded education scholarships and to progress to better schools. The Chestnut Foundation recognizes the importance of this exam and the opportunities it can provide for disadvantaged children. As such, the foundation awarded these successful students with essential resources such as schoolbooks, uniforms, and equipment to support their educational journey.
The Chestnut Foundation understands that access to quality education is a fundamental right, and it aims to create brighter futures for underprivileged children and their communities by removing barriers to education. Through its charitable activities, the foundation is making a meaningful impact in the lives of children, helping them succeed in school and beyond.
