New PCs to Horizon Lanka

computer-kids2 computer-kids3 computer-kidsHorizon Lanka received 10 brand new PCs from Dr. Tissa Jinasena, the founder of Tissa Jinasena Group in January. Earlier the students used to practice with few old PCs that constantly gave problems. Now students are happy to use these brand new PCs. They practice computers with the instructor’s assistance every evening.

The used PCs we had earlier received from donors were donated to two nearby schools, Thakshila Maha Vidyalaya and Gamini Vidyalaya along with the furniture.

Malitta Nanayakkara is a young software engineer from Rajagiriya, Colombo. Having been inspired by a tweet about resumption of Horizon Lanka academic activities last July 23 by veteran science writer Nalaka Gunawardene, Malitta contacted Nanda Wanninayaka, the Founder of Horizon Lanka and promised to donate two computers and other necessary equipment.

Malitta visited Mahawilachchiya today with his friend Manahara Mohotti, another young software engineer from Colombo. Malitta donated two PCs, a digital camera, a sub-woofer, a pen drive, networking equipment and some software to Horizon Lanka Foundation. This is the first ever donation after the resumption of the institute. Horizon Lanka will start teaching ICT as soon as necessary software are installed with the donated equipment. We thank Malitta for visiting and donating most needed equipment to Horizon Lanka.

We request you to chip in helping Horizon Lanka to have a fully pledged ICT institute once again with your generous support. We still need more PCs, a laptop, computer chairs and a professional digital video camera.
