Project Cost: 3,000
Project Location: Panadura, Sri Lanka
The Gothama Boys Orphanage is located in the town of Panadura in Sri Lanka. An existing residential building had been converted to provide a home for 15 orphaned boys aged between 7 and 15 years old. The existing building was in a very run-down condition. The boys lived in very basic conditions with access to rudimentary toilet and washing facilities:
The refurbishment works included:
- The replacement of windows and doors.
- The rewiring and replacement of all electrical fittings.
- The supply and installation of a new toilet, shower and wash hand basin.
- All walls and ceilings were repaired and decorated externally and internally.
The project was completed at the end of the 2014 and now provides a much cleaner, safer and nicer home for the boys.
