Jothiya Pre School (2015)
Education is the incomparable asset that a child can have in his life. As a society we have the responsibility to provide the necessities for the children for their education. Therefore, stepping out from the boundaries, as the second CSR of the year 2015 JFS Holdings has taken a decision to help a Pre School to fulfil the basic education necessities of the kids.
“JOTHIYA”, Early Childhood Development Centre was rebuilt, furnished and declared open on 16 July 2015 in line with the third year anniversary celebrations of JFS Holdings. JOTHIYA is the only Pre School located in Maliththa Gramasewaka division of Hali-Ela divisional secretariat area in Badulla district, which is one of the most underprivileged areas in literacy and education in Sri Lanka. The project was partially funded by a donor who is working overseas on the request of JFS Holdings. Managing the project from a distance of 200 km was the biggest challenge JFS Holdings faced during the project. A brand new building of nearly 1000 sq. ft. as constructed and donated to manage two newly furnished classrooms for 44 kids. This was a 06 months’ project coasting nearly LKR. 500,000.
