Er is een plan gemaakt om een nieuwe kleuterschool te bouwen in Thirumalpulam. Daarvoor is overleg geweest met EHED Critas Trincomalee. Zij hebben de plannen uitgewerkt. Er is grond beschikbaar voor de bouw. We vragen Wilde Ganzen te participeren in dit project.
Objective of the project: -
1. Providing access to preschool education by providing infrastructure facilities
and basic knowledge to the children and a formation before they move into
the formal education
Thirumalpuram Village is situated in the Pulmoddai Road in Kuchchaveli Divisional Secretary’s division and we need to go along this road and at Periyakulam village, we have to branch of to Thirumalpuram which is situated at a remote corner almost closer to the Periyakulam tank. This village comes under the Grama Niladahri division of Periyakulam. Thirumal Puram is a war affected village and the families have been displaced in South India and returned to the island and resettled when the war ended in the year 2009. At the moment there are 175 families residing within the village. There is no educational institution within the village the grown-up children go walking to Periyakulam to attend the school. Present preschool is functioning in a temporary shelter which belongs to the Rural Development Society. In our monitoring visit, we have found there were 18 preschool children. At the moment one teacher manages the children, all of them are up to 05 years old.
The DS Kuchchaveli also supports us very much and the DS himself requested us to put up a preschool for the children of the Thirumalpuram Once the proposal is realized the rest of the approval will be taken from the respective Divisional Secretary and the educational authorities.
