Mr. Chula Bandara, a Sri Lankan American from Aurora, Chicago, Illinois in the United States of America had helped Horizon Lanka long time ago. He donated 10,000 LKR (110.74 USD at the time of exchange rate – 2001) to one of the most talented students at Horizon Academy – Mahawilachchiya, Isuru Senevirathna as a financial scholarship. Today he is a system administrator at prestigious conglomerate Hayleys Group Ltd. in Sri Lanka.
Mr. Bandara’s wife Ms. Champika Sumithraarachchi and their son Thimira Bandara from the United States of America visited Horizon Academy – Tantirimale in July, 2017 and volunteered to teach English and computers. They also donated 20,000 LKR (130.71 USD) to the Academy. Not only that, they also donated school supplies, stationery, USB pen drives, etc. to be distributed among the students. We thank the Bandara family for this kind gesture.
They also promised us that they will introduce our children to the Sri Lankan community in their town so that the children from both the countries can communicate with each other electronically to improve our children’s English.
