Dialog donated 6 brand new PCs and 6 computer tables for the students to use. The company also donated 120,000 LKR as the allowance for one of our teachers for the year 2007. This will enable, one of our instructors, Mr Buddhika Hettiarachchi – a final year engineering student at University of Peradeniya an uninterrupted monthly allowance for 2007.
The cost of the total donation was 500,000 LKR ((4637.35 USD). Dialog Telekom has been helping Horizon Lanka Foundation since 2003. First, the company provided Horizon Lanka Foundation a low cost phone package for 5 staff members and 10 parents. Then they provided mobile phone service to Horizon Lanka premises by installing a repeater on Horizon’s internet tower. They expected to cover the whole village with mobile service in near future too.
