  Pahansila-Davis Educational Project
 

Mr. Kelley Davis of Indiana, USA, contacted Pahansila as he was interested in starting a project to help Sri Lankan students to improve English and Mathematics in addition to the curriculum they learn at school. Because of the diversity of this project from the usual scholarships we give, Pahansila General Coordinating Committee (PGCC) took the responsibility of initiating such classes and building teams in different parts of Sri Lanka. Our goal is to conduct these classes in different cities in the Island maintaining a class-size cap of 20 students, ranging from primary to secondary levels. In 2006 we launched this project by starting two programs in Kandy. Now we have expanded it to 6 projects of English and Math classes. Furthermore under the Pahansila-Davis program we are conducting several special projects, such as improving the facilities at Sarana Sevana children's home, providing new libraries and other facilities to less-privileged schools, providing scholarships for higher studies and vocational training courses for the students who have completed high school etc.

Structure of the Project

Mr. & Mrs. Kelley and Sara Davis (Indianapolis, USA) and Mr. Kyle Davis (Sydney, Australia), the benefactors of the free Math and English classes project, have taken the full responsibility of funding the project. Each area has a local team consisting of supervisors, coordinators, and qualified teachers for English and Mathematics. PGCC maintains savings accounts in Sri Lanka solely for this special project. The account is held jointly between two administrators appointed by the PGCC. The administrators submit bi-annual reports to the PGCC and Mr. Davis. These reports include a summary of financial transactions, progress reports from the teachers and local supervisors.
