Extra Cover Sri Lanka
Who we are
The mission of Extra Cover is to help some of Sri Lanka’s poorest school children grow up with hope. It provides basic essentials – from food and clean water to toilets and textbooks – to 28 extremely poor remote schools in the south of the island. As funds allow, it also installs playground equipment, helps families and their housing, digs wells and runs tea and cinnamon-growing cooperatives.
Since 2014 Extra Cover have opened 3 special education units to cater for children with all types of disabilities. They will be working closely with local government to provide education for those who have not had the opportunity in the past.
Recently 2 vocational training schools for disabled young adults have been opened, giving vital life skills to people who have never had the chance before.
