Ceremonial Opening of Pambahinna Multi-purpose Community Building and School, 9th July 2011

On 9th July 2011 our third pre-school and multi-purpose community building in the Ratnapura District was opened in the village of Pambahinna. Trustee Jane Taylor was in attendance. Jane writes: ‘What was delightful was the sheer enthusiasm of everyone concerned. There was some most energetic dancing, from the young men in particular, dressed in brilliantly coloured national costumes, leaping and gesturing to the sound of hypnotic drum beats.

The villagers welcomed the new building with the most genuine sense of privilege, and with passionate plans for future enterprises and sophistications.’
