TOR FRANCISCANS of the Vice Province of Our lady of Lanka, Sri Lanka
‘Purnodaya Scholarship Fund’ aims to assist poor students from low-income families in Sri Lanka to achieve their formal education.
a) To open doors for education by providing financial aid for the students from low-income families. We believe that the education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world.
b) To break the cycle of poverty. Poverty and education are inextricably linked, because people living in poverty may stop sending their children to schools, which leaves them without literacy and numeracy skills they need to find a career in future.
a) Purnodaya Scholarship Project also benefits families of the sponsored children. We as Catholic priests reach out warmly to these poor families, making them involved in their children's schooling and providing additional resources to alleviate their poor living condition.
b) Parents will be made aware of the importance of the education of their children.
c) We will be able to facilitate the parents with the new techniques that they can use to support their children's learning at home.
Children are selected from very poor families irrespective of sex, ethnicity and religion. Each child is to be screened by a committee to establish his/her real needs.
Our main focus is on;
The selected children can be divided into two groups as the children who are receiving Primary education (From Grade 1 to 5 / Age 6 – 10 years old) and the children who are receiving Secondary education (from Grade 6 – 13 / Age 11 – 18 years old)
We suggest giving monthly Sri Lankan Rs. 1,500.00 to a child who is in primary level and Sri Lankan Rs. 2,000.00 for a student in secondary level.
