Sithija was placed first out of more than 350,000 boys and girls in Sri Lanka's Grade 5 scholarship examinations. Having won a scholarship to a high school in Colombo, his educational expenses still increased significantly for his parents. Come-Share's support is crucial to his family now that Sithija has commenced Grade 7.
We support students enrolled in 160 hour courses in English, information technology and career skills. More than half of those who participate have gone on to find employment or government appointment, and others going into further vocational training.
Come-Share has helped to provide disabled youth with training in English, information technology and career skills. It has also contributed towards the educational and vocational expenses of young people at the Paynter Home.
This three-month residential program is partially funded by Come-Share. It aims to provide English language training in remote, war-torn areas where formal education is limited. In bringing together students from the Sinhala and Tamil communities who don't share a common language, the use of English is a valuable way to connect. 30 students participated in the program in 2019.
