NOTICE

THE STUDENTS OF S. THOMAS’ PREPARATORY SCHOOL, KOLLUPITIYA PLEDGED TO FUNDRAISE AND VOLUNTEER TO CONSTRUCT A HOME FOR SITHUM’S FAMILY THROUGH THE BRICK BY BRICK PROJECT. THE HOME WAS SCHEDULED TO BE CONSTRUCTED IN AUGUST 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK CONSTRUCTION OF THE HOME WILL BE DELAYED UNTIL 2021.

The Brick by Brick Project is a Campaign led by Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka which seeks to match changemakers (interested donors) with families in urgent need of a safe place to call home. Through the unique model of the Brick by Brick project Habitat Sri Lanka is able to support vulnerable and marginalized families by matching them with donors who would be willing to sponsor their home. Each eligible family is partnered with a donor/network of donors who would like to come forward and sponsor that family’s home. The fundraiser drives the journey of fundraising for that particular family – by raising donations among family and friends, one brick at a time.

The students of S.Thomas’ Preparatory School, Kollupitiya have selected the BBB Campaign as their Community Development Project for 2020. Through this project the Choir of S.Thomas’ Preparatory School has committed to raise funds to construct a home for a family in desperate need of support.

A new home would mean stability for our boys. It would mean that even though we may not always have enough to eat, we will always have a roof over our heads. My boys will finally have a safe place to call home. Most importantly, it would mean that my wife and I can rest easy knowing that Sithum will always have a place to live in for the rest of his days.
