Improving 3G Mobile Coverage at Horizon Academy – Mahawilachchiya by Dialog Axiata – Update 4

At Horizon Lanka, we use Dialog Axiata PLC‘s telecommunication solutions for voice, data and satellite TV. There was an issue with Dialog 3G coverage in Mahawilachchiya during last few weeks – maybe due to high demand for the data service – since many youths and teenagers use internet a lot now. Mr. Nuwan Samaranayake from Houston, Texas, the United States raised the issue with Mr. Supun Weerasinghe, the CEO of Dialog Axiata and the latter promptly took actions to solve the problem. They sent three technical teams to provide different solutions and the latest came last Saturday (November 11, 2017) as Dialog Axiata installed a CenRF WCDMA Pico Repeater and a enRF TriBand Yagi Antenna to strengthen the 3G coverage within the Horizon Academy building. Now we get strong 3G internet coverage inside the computer lab. It still fluctuates with going back to 2G once in a while but mostly there is good coverage within the building. We thank Dialog Axiata for installing this high-tech equipment to provide us better coverage.

Though we have stronger 3G signals within the computer lab, the rest of Mahawilachchiya still have the problem of fluctuating 3G signals between 3G and 2G. So, there are rumors that the Dialog’s high-tension tower erected at Kirial Petiyawa, Mahawilachchiya would be shifted to the center of Mahawilachchiya village so that everyone could use stronger 3G coverage. Kiral Petiyawa is situated at the edge of Mahawilachchiya and there are less people in that area as it is mostly a farming region.

Dialog Axiata PLC provided 3G coverage to the whole Mahawilachchiya village in 2009 on the request of Mr. Nanda Wanninayaka, the Founder of Horizon Lanka Foundation long before some bigger towns in Anuradhapura were provided the facility. Of late, some of the other mobile operators like Hutch and Mobitel also extended their 2G coverages into 3G but only small pockets of the village are covered with 3G access by them while Dialog Axiata uses two communication towers in Mahawilachchiya to provide a wider 3G coverage.

Room to Read Donates English Supplementary Reading Books to Horizon Lanka Foundation

Kids reading books received from Room to Read, Sri Lanka.

Horizon Lanka Foundation received 261 English supplementary reading books from Room to Read, a non-profit organization for helping girls’ education and children’s literacy, on November 02, 2017.

The children read the books with great enthusiasm as the books are very attractive, colorful and easy to use. Obviously, the children are from rural areas and their English knowledge is not much advanced. So, they try to read and understand the books through beautiful pictures.

The Horizon Lanka Foundation has launched a project to measure and to upgrade children’s reading ability and to motivate their eagerness towards reading with understanding with the belief they would learn English faster and will be more open to the world. We are sure they are on the right path.

The books are in different levels; children can learn from lower levels to higher level of English. The books are designed in a very methodical way.

The books will b shared with Horizon Academies in Mahawilachchiya, Tantirimale and Anuradhapura City. We also need books for our new Horizon academy branches in Ranpathvila and Ralapanawa in Anuradhapura district.

Horizon Lanka thanks to Room to Read for this generous donation. Thanks also go to Ms. Umeshi Rajeendra for coordinating this donation.

Horizon Lanka Foundation Launches Horizon Academy – Ranpathvila on November 01, 2017

Students at Horizon Academy in Ranpathvila

Students at Horizon Academy in RanpathvilaHorizon Lanka Foundation (HLF) starts its flagship academic institute, the fourth branch of Horizon Academy in Ranpathvila, Kahatagasgidiliya, Anuradhapura tomorrow, November 01, 2017. The HLF started its first Horizon Academy in Mahawilachchiya in August 01, 1998 (19 years ago) and the second on May 01, 2017 in Tantirimale (5 months ago) and the third on September 01, 2017 in Anuradhapura City (one month ago) and have plans to start its 5th branch in Ralapanawa, Nochchiyagama, Anuradhapura on December 01, 2017.

The idea of starting a Horizon Academy in Ranpathvila is quite abrupt, unexpected and interesting. My eldest brother, Nayanasena Wanninayake who works as a civil engineer in the United Arab Emirates (and also a Sinhala lyrycyst) shared a story on Facebook about a young and energetic Sinhala teacher (Mr. Sugath Nayanananda) who contributed to a free nightly school classes program at Welusuamana Maha Vidyalaya, Thammannewa, Mihintale, Anuradhapura under the blessings of the then principal of the school Mrs. Lalana Dimuthu Wijayanganai. (She is the principal of Kahatagasdigiliya Central College now and continues the nightly school there too.) The subjects covered in this very productive program were Sinhala, English, science, mathematics, history, ICT and aesthetic subjects. The results of the program were amazing and the students’ pass rates at the national level exam GCE Ordinary Level usually taken by students during the final two years of Senior Secondary School [Grade 10 & 11 (usually ages 15–16)] improved significantly and both Welusuamana Maha Vidyalaya and Kahatagasdigiliya Central College successfully continue the program. I visited Welusuamana Maha Vidyalaya on my personal capacity a few weeks ago and met the staff and I am yet to visit Kahatagasdigiliya Central College.

Having shared the information about Sugath’s contribution to this exceptional program, my brother asked me if I could help them academically in any way possible. Since I have an “unending emotional bond” to the area and I saw this is a perfect program for Horizon Lanka to be of some service to the region, I had a couple of meetings with Sugath and we both decided to start a Horizon Academy branch in Ranpathvila where the students from Kahatagasdigiliya and Mihintale have easy access to since it is situated in the Anuradhapura – Trincomalee main road. There are around 10-15 smaller rural schools in the area and hopefully those students too could join Horizon Academy – Ranpathvila.

So, please share this story with the students and the youth in the adjoining areas and tell them to join Horizon Academy at their earliest. The Academy starts officially tomorrow (November 01, 2017) at 3.00 pm and the course fees for the first month (November) will be completely free of charge and there will be a fee of 500 LKR per student for a range of subjects from English to ICT to robotics to aesthetics subjects to sports.

So, come and join us at Horizon Academy, The First and Only Edutainment Academy of Sri Lanka. Miss Melissa Schmitt from France has joined the institute as the first foreign volunteer at the Academy.

Contact Mr. Sugath Nayanananda, the Manager of Horizon Academy – Ranpathvila at sugath@horizonlanka.org through email and on 077-4499924 or 071-4299924 on mobile or Mr. Namal Thissa, the English Teacher of the academy at namal@horizonlanka.org and on 077-4546484 or 071-9937398.

So, see you at Horizon Academy – Ranpathvila tomorrow at 3.00 pm.

Thanks to my brother Nayanasena Wanninayaka for making this connection which will in turn do a big difference in the education in the area. Let’s hope for the best.

Improving 3G Mobile Coverage in Mahawilachchiya by Dialog Axiata – Update 3

Dialog technical team at Prabodha Sandeepani's house in Mahawilachchiya

Dialog technical team at Prabodha Sandeepani's house in MahawilachchiyaDialog Axiata PLC provided 3G coverage to the whole Mahawilachchiya village in 2009 on the request of Mr. Nanda Wanninayaka, the Founder of Horizon Lanka Foundation long before some bigger towns in Anuradhapura were provided the facility. Of late, some of the other mobile operators like Hutch and Mobitel also extended their 2G coverages into 3G but only small pockets of the village are covered with 3G access by them while Dialog Axiata uses two communication towers in Mahawilachchiya to provide a wider 3G coverage.

With the number of Dialog customers being increased for both voice and data, the Dialog 3G connectivity has become slow of late and it is difficult to enjoy an uninterrupted 3G coverage as the 3G facility keeps switching between 3G (HSPA) and 2G (EDGE) coverage quite often and the communication is affected. It even deteriorated with the arrival of the monsoon rains.

So, Mr. Nuwan Samaranayake, a Sri Lankan born software engineer who works in Houston, Texas, USA was keen to have a stronger 3G coverage in Mahawilachchiya as he is using internet to teach a student named Aruni Apsara of Grade 9. He uses both Skype and Facebook facetime to teach her and the results are amazing. The lucky girl has bettered her marks at each term tests in English, science and mathematics due to untiring efforts of Mr. Samaranayake. He was worried when the communication started being affected due to low signals. He asked Mr. Wanninayaka as how to solve this problem because he is planning to encourage Houston-based Sri Lankan American community to teach more students in Mahawilachchiya village using Internet. Mr. Wanninayaka told him the best thing would be to raise the issue with Dialog Axiata’s young CEO Mr. Supun Weerasinghe himself. The former did so and the latter immediately sent a technical team on October 26, 2017 to go to a few affected students’ houses and check the internet signals. The team headed by Mr. Kasun Aththanayaka of Dialog Axiata PLC went to affected students’ houses and reported the problem to the Dialog Head Office. Now they are working on readjusting the communication devices at Dialog Axiata’s tower at Kiralpetiyawa, Mahawilachchiya to improve the quality of the coverage.

We at Horizon Lanka Foundation thank Mr. Nuwan Samaranayake for raising the issue with Dialog Axiata and Mr. Supun Weerasinghe for the prompt action. Let us hope that the 3G coverage in Mahawilachchiya be improved significantly and the students and the community of Mahawilachchiya would be benefitted as a result.

Welcoming the visitors

A group of Sri Lankan children in Chicago, USA held their annual talent show with the help of their families in August, 2016. Having learnt about Horizon Lanka through a mutual friend, they donated a portion of the collection, 250 USD (38,267.50 LKR) to us.

Mr. Buddika Gajapala and his family visited Horizon Lanka on June 11, 2017. They are a Sri Lankan American family that lives in Chicago, the United States of America. They brought us stationary, USB pen drives, a lot of good quality reading glasses, a robotic unit and an Amazon Kindle Fire e-book reader.

Last Sunday, the October 1, 2017 Mr. Nihal Jayawardhana and Mrs. Nayana Jayawardhana from Colombo visited Horizon Academy, Tantirimale and donated 20 vouchers to by DSI http://www.dsi.lk/ shoes for the students at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya. Each voucher has a value of 1,000 LKR (6.5 USD.) The children were very happy with this generous donation. They also received a bar of chocolate for each student from the visitors. Mr. and Mrs. Jayawardhana, Lieutenant Colonel Kanishka Jayawardhana and his son came to Tantirimale to make this donation.

Children at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya did some dancing items to entertain the visitors.

The funds for this donation were raised by “Chicago Sri Lankan Children’s Talent Show,” Co-organized by Nadun Gajapala, Ruchira Fernando and Sean Randunne. We thank you all for this kind gesture.

Before coming to Mahawilachchiya, they also donated 64 vouchers to buy DSI shoes.

Sweeping Changes at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya

The Founder and the Chairman of the Horizon Lanka Foundation, Mr. Nanda Wanninayaka is leaving Sri Lanka to volunteer in South America for a period of one year from next month. Hence, there are sweeping changes at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya these days. We appointed a new manager, Mr. Ranjan Prabhath Rathnamalala, an energetic young man in the village, also a counselor and the headmaster of the Sri Mihihindu Dhamma School in Mahawilachchiya. Miss Jeewani Shanika Dissanayaka was appointed as the accountant of the organization. We also appointed Miss Prarthana Sewwandi Wijerathna, a former student of Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya who just finished her High School in Biology stream as the ICT instructor of the Academy. Her dream is to become a computer instructor and also an English teacher. She hopes to graduate in both the subject areas in coming years.

We held a staff, parents’ and students’ meeting on September 24, 2017 and discussed the forthcoming changes and how to continue the academic activities in the absence of Mr. Wanninayaka. The new staff would assume their duties from October 01, 2017.

Sarah Campbell

Sarah Campbell from the United Kingdom volunteered at Horizon Lanka Foundation in July, August 2017. See her tour report below..

My husband, Joe Campbell and I were travelling around Asia when we decided we wanted to volunteer at Horizon Lanka Foundation, we were slightly nervous having not done any teaching in the past, however it turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made!

On our first day we were welcomed by Nanda and Sunanda (who runs the Horizon Academy – Tantirimale) and they took us on the back of their motorbikes to our Sri Lankan family who would be hosting us for the month. They were so welcoming and made us feel part of the family from the very first day. We had a small room that was slightly separate from the rest of the house (with a fan and a mosquito net, although luckily during July there didn’t seem to be too many mosquitoes!) We spent a lot of time with our host family when we weren’t teaching, one of our favourite evening activities was a card game called Uno (which often resulted in big competitive family games in the evenings including all the cousins, aunts and uncles as well!) There was such a lovely community feel in the village, with friends and family popping in all the time to either play cricket, a game of carrom (a really fun Sri Lankan disc flicking game!) or just to drink tea, chat and play with Lassy (their adorable 2 month old puppy!)

For our meals, we generally had biscuits and a cup of tea for breakfast and delicious rice and curry for lunch and dinner (these ranged from pumpkin curry to iguana lizard curry which was hunted by the 18-year-old boy in the family!) We were always given new food to try, such as berries, corn (a delicious fruit that the children would get from the trees most days and give to you) and tamarind (another delicious fruit that you suck on)!

Now to the teaching… teaching the children in Tantirimale was one of the most exciting, challenging and rewarding things I have ever done. My husband and I had never taught before and so were slightly terrified before we turned up. On our first day we were faced with a room of 15/20 students and although we didn’t really know where to start we slowly got into it. Their English was relatively limited so we started with basic vocabulary such as colours, animals, clothing etc. and built up to adjectives and basic sentences towards the end of the month. The children were very patient with us (especially at the beginning when we were still working out what to do!) They were such kind, caring, fun, smiley children who listened intently to every word we said and wanted to learn as much as they could. We couldn’t have asked for better students!

For the first couple of weeks we taught in the public school in the mornings and then at Horizon Lanka in the afternoons (however because they were in the exam period it meant we didn’t necessarily know what times we’d be teaching until the day before/ on the day, but that was fine we just got used to being flexible!) After two weeks, the school broke up for summer holidays and we were only teaching at Horizon Academy – Tantirimale. Some days we would teach all day at Horizon Academy, but often we would do 9.00 am-2.00 pm because it was due to rain in the afternoon (and they didn’t want the children to have to walk long journeys back to their houses in the rain.)

Teaching in the public school was an amazing experience; we played lots of games and got them to draw and label scenarios, as well as doing a lot of call and repeat. It was also handy that they had desks so we would occasionally write out a worksheet and photocopy them at Horizon Academy and get them to fill them in during the lessons (there was a printer at the academy so this method seemed to work for us and it mixed up the lessons a bit!) After school we would then teach at Horizon Academy which has an outdoors area so you can do more creative things (such as sports, teaching them to dance, playing guitar, keyboard etc.) Teaching the children to swing dance was a particular highlight for me – especially when the boys were paired up and did some amazing twists and turns!

On our days off we did some really fun activities including a safari (where we saw a leopard resting 5m from the jeep), canoeing, staying in a local farmer’s tree house, wild elephant spotting (we saw 20 wild elephants one afternoon!) and taking the family tractor to a local river to swim.

Overall it was such a great experience that I would recommend to everyone if you have the chance to do it. When I first arrived, I was completely out of my comfort zone (not knowing how to teach, living in a completely different culture and environment to the UK, even things like wearing a cheeththa when showering outside took a bit of getting used to) but because it was so different it meant I learnt so much both about myself and about the community we were living in, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. We have gained another family in Sri Lanka and I am so grateful to them and the wonderful children at Horizon Academy – Tantirimale for making it honestly one of the best experiences of my life!

Мой опыт волонтерства в Horizon Lanka. Mahavilachchiya (http://www.horizonlanka.org/)

Все всегда начинается со смыслов. Если в том, что мы делаем есть глубина, нам всегда хочется быть в этом процессе. А еще лучше если есть глубина и идея, которая может поменять этот мир. Сделать этот мир лучше и добрее.

В этом случае я обеими руками за. Мне не хватало возможности быть полезной обществу в этом путешествии. Я честно старалась делиться, помогать окружающим, но было нечто большее внутри, что хотелось отразить в больших действиях.

Очень рада, что такая возможность появилась. Первый раз в жизни работала волонтеров в Казахстане, тогда мы устраняли последствия селевого потока. Это второй заграничный опыт работы волонтером. Очень приятные ощущения от работы в этом очень красивом и умиротворенном месте.

Об идеи. Идея на самом деле очень светлая. Появилась она более 10 лет назад в голове замечательного человека Nanda Wanninayaka https://www.facebook.com/nanda.wanninayaka.official. Появилась она потому что в Mahavilachchiya особо занятся не чем и возможности у детей получать хорошее образование, чтобы потом поступить в колледж не было.

Два варианта развития событий: армия для мальчиков, а потом возвращение в село и работа на швейных фабриках для девочек. Все. Он решил создать место в котором можно получать хорошее образование. И опыт показал, что этого достаточно, чтобы поступить в колледж. У Нанды очень много выпускников, которые получили образование и работают в разных отраслях.

То, что может быть полезно всем нам или как он нашел меня. Есть замечательный сайт https://www.workaway.info/. На этом сайте вы размешаете объявление о поиске человеческой силы. В замен на работу, которую они будут делать, вы предоставляете питание и проживание.

Это не рабство:) Чаще всего волонтеры работают несколько часов в день. А потом у них свободное время. Волонтеры выполняют разную работу. Можно работать учителем в школе, можно помогать строить дом. Вы сами можете поближе познакомиться с этим сайтом.

Так, Нанда находит волонтеров, которые могут обучать детей в его центре. Думаю, многим сельским школам России и не только можно взять это на заметку:) Кто-то обучает танцам, как я например. Кто-то английскому. Кто-то занимается с ними спортом. В любом случае это обучение с удовольствием. А самое главное, что все мы можем говорить с детьми только на английском. Это отличная возможность для детей начать говорить на английском.

И для нас волонтеров это очень хорошая практика. Если у вас появиться желание и возможность поработать здесь волонтером. То пишите напрямую моему хорошему другу Нанад (https://www.facebook.com/nanda.wanninayaka.official) Он будет рад любой помощи, тем более что сейчас у него много идей и планов как изменить это место и сделать здесь IT лагерь и не только. Уверенна помощь ему будет нужна.

Это очень классное место и отличная команда, которая готова менять это село и мир в целом. Хочу, чтобы все у него получилось!
