Since 2019, Agility Sri Lanka has worked with the Sri Lankan Army to support the refurbishment of a school that hosts 174 students in a remote northern village that houses internally displaced persons.
The team started by hiring a construction crew to rebuild the school’s washroom facility and added water filters for clean drinking water. In 2020, they started to build a classroom and computer lab, outfitted the room, repaired and purchased nine computers, and installed Wi-Fi routers.
The students were previously learning outdoors, with only the shade of a tree to shield them from the sun and heavy rains, and would miss a lot of school days due to the shifting weather. The Sri Lankan Army takes on many similar projects to support the community and Agility Sri Lanka has been a major asset in contributing to the success of this incredible initiative.
