In October 2023, the Chestnut Foundation, the charitable arm of Chestnut Education, extended its support to the Nochchiyagama Ranorawa Primary Vidyalaya, a primary school located in the rural region of Nochchiyagama, Sri Lanka. As part of our ongoing commitment to education and community development, we provided essential school supplies to 22 students, ensuring they have the necessary tools to support their learning journey.
The Nochchiyagama Ranorawa Primary Vidyalaya is an educational hub for young learners in the area. However, many students in this region face challenges related to access to educational resources. We recognize that having the right tools is fundamental to a child’s educational progress, and we wanted to alleviate this burden for these students.
Each student received a curated kit of essential school supplies, including notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, and other items crucial for their academic pursuits. While these supplies may appear ordinary, they represent an essential foundation for these students’ educational success.
The choice of location, Nochchiyagama, underscores our dedication to reaching underserved communities. In rural areas like Nochchiyagama, access to quality education and necessary resources can be limited. By conducting this event in such a locality, the Chestnut Foundation aims to bridge the educational gap and ensure that every child, regardless of their geographical location, has access to the tools they need to thrive in school.
The event reiterates our belief in the transformative power of education. We understand that seemingly small acts, such as providing school supplies, can have a profound impact on a child’s educational experience and, by extension, their future opportunities.
Our ongoing initiatives are a testament to our commitment to fostering positive change through education. As we continue to expand our reach and support, the Chestnut Foundation remains steadfast in its mission to make a lasting impact on communities that deserve equal access to quality education.
