This project has been setup to benefit the economically struggling grade school and university students from North and East for 3 academic years. This fund currently pays a monthly stipend 50 university students as well as monthly allowances to about 60 grade school students and 30 O/L students . There is an ever increasing demand for this kind of help and presently we have identified 160 such students who need your help.

How can you help?


  • Donate. Your on-line or mail-in donation can provide a war affected individual or family with opportunity and hope to improve their lives.


  • Volunteer your time and skills to NOW-WOW charitable activities.  We often need help with fundraising, project planning, coordination and execution, project monitoring and following up with recipients on their progress, working with local partners, social media and communication, updating donors with status, etc. Please email us if you are interested.


  • Become a mentor. There are lot of young Tamils who need your help. Money alone cannot be of help in certain cases. Help the ones suffering from post war syndrome and depression.


  • Shop at Amazon Smile to support our cause.

Empowerment

By undertaking projects to restore, educate, sustain and augment the income-generating capacity of the war-ravaged families who had lost their primary breadwinner in the civil war of Sri Lanka.

We are focused on  communal dairy  and agriculture farming projects that will benefit and create employment for the war affected families. These fully interlocked projects will raise the income level of those families considerably. We have successfully completed a  vegetable farming project to support 40 families in Trinco district and started dairy farm project in Mullaitheevu district . There are more who can be added to this project as beneficiaries.
