Horizon Lanka children learn English and IT using local and foreign teachers and e-mentors. We also learn dancing, music, sports, graphic designing, web designing and programming.
All students who are over 13 years old are permitted to create Facebook accounts. We are allowed by Horizon Lanka to connect with Horizon Lanka students, selected few friends, our siblings, donors and local and foreign volunteers. We all use Facebook under the strict supervision of our teachers. We upload our photos, videos and other posts to Facebook. This helps us to get connected with our friends here and aboard. It helps us to learn English and improve our computer skills. Facebook effectively connects us to the world.
With Facebook, sometimes we do mistakes. I too erred. But with our teachers I corrected myself. Every new technology is used badly at first and if we are smart we can minimize mistakes.
