Dhananjaya entered Horizon Lanka at Grade 8 and obtained an A pass for his English at Ordinary Level and mastered computers as well. He was a bright student at Horizon Lanka and took part in extracurricular activities also.
Laksaviya Foundation (LSF), Australia was introduced to Dhananjaya through Horizon Lanka. LSF has been helping him financially though an ongoing scholarship to support his academic expenses.
