Fifteen remote villages in the Sri Lanka government and LTTE controlled areas in the Trincomalee district will continue to receive financial support from the Trincomalee Children Fund (TCF-Canada), the organizers said after an assessment study into the working of the project, during an event held at Sambaltivu Tamil Maha Vidiyalayam Sunday. The project was initiated in 2002 to improve the educational standard of war-affected students in deprived areas of Trincomalee district.

The project provides financial support for conducting evening classes after school hours for students in the Grades 10,11 and 12 on three subjects, Mathematics, Science and English language by deploying specially trained teachers.

Evening class centres are located in Kanniya, Eachchilampathu, Ilankaithurai, Alankerni, Killiveddi, Mallikaitheivu, Punnaiyady and Iruthayapuram.

The main objective of the project is to prepare students in villages which are backward in educational sphere to compete with urban students and to gain university admission and other educational opportunities, said Mr.S.Chandrakumar, Treasurer of the TCF-Canada.

More than one thousand students are studying in these centres and the TCF spends monthly about seventy thousand rupees to run these centres, said Mr.A.Parasuraman, Secretary.

Mr.Antonypillai appealed to parents to encourage their children to utilize the opportunity.
