We started the CPI-HLF event on August 24, 2016. Next day, the students visited Horizon Lanka and there were around 130-140 students there. Sarwar Mushtaq and his team members did a splendid job throughout the event.
An engineer from LankaCom and some technicians from their subcontractor, Sanit Technologies in Anuradhapura visited Horizon Lanka on October 17, 2015. They wanted to see if LankaCom can provide a leased internet line to provide unlimited access to the internet for Horizon Lanka.
My first day in Sri Lanka started at Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake (aka Colombo Airport) after eleven hours of flight from the Czech Republic. After a short time I was sitting in a Tuk Tuk (three-wheeler) to Colombo Fort Railway Station. That was the place, where I met my girlfriend Klara, who was teaching English as a volunteer in Mahawilachchiya village for Horizon Lanka Foundation. Our journey started there and it was big! :-)
Rehan had sent me two laptops instead of one, even without me being eligible for the rewarding as I still haven’t befriended at least 500 of Rehan’s mutual Facebook friends. But I get the idea that he sent me the two laptops upfront because he admires my work at Horizon Lanka Foundation which I founded myself some 17 years ago to enhance village children’s English and ICT knowledge.
“The vision of the Horizon Lanka Foundation is to make rural Sri Lanka as technologically advanced as any metropolis whilst retaining its culture and sense of community.”
