The village of Kirelawela lies on the coast at the southern tip of the island, a few kilometers east of Matara town. In 2010 a team of student volunteers provided funding for a multi-purpose community building here and spent two months in voluntary teaching and community support and development activities. Volunteers have sustained our support and activities here since this time.

Activities since 2010

Since 2010 volunteers living in other communities in the Matara district have made regular visits to Kirelawela to sustain our work there. Reference to these continuation activities will be found in the diaries on the pages of our more recent partnership villages.
