This is a photo taken by Pip Neville- Barton, a Rose Charities NZ Trustee. She was at a meeting of Rose Canada volunteers who were discussing the project in Sri Lanka. Last year Rose Charities Sri Lanka received a generous grant from a Swiss foundation. This is helping develop education projects at all levels – ranging from pre-school to university – in Kalmunai which was devastated in the tsunami. The great thing about the project is that it is run by the community itself.
In the photo – (viewers right to left), Josephine de Freitas, (back to camera), William Grut, Linda Roberts, Yoga Yogendran, Bill Johnston, and Gail Belcher.
