Many children face challenges during their time at school which may mean they’re unable to compete with their studies and pursue their future career goals. For others, their life situation may change meaning they need to re-train to gain employment that suits their family life.
To improve young student’s chances and create a better economic future for themselves, it’s important for children to be engaged in school. But sadly not every child has the same opportunities to achieve this.
Education has the power to change lives of an individual. Our Hello Star charity program provides financial support to a young deserving student in Sri Lanka for her education. Our support starts in the early years of learning development and continues through primary and high school. Our programs have helped to build her skills, knowledge, motivation, self-belief and a network of positive relationships with teachers and school member. This support increases a young person like her to remain engaged with school and develop a realistic and informed study and career pathways for life beyond the school gate.
Our charity work aims to keep children, families and communities engaged in learning by providing positive educational experiences and opportunities to grow life skills. We strive to be culturally responsive, effective and holistic.
