Book Giving Ceremony
It was a privilege and an honour yesterday to give schoolbooks on behalf of TFT to 1860 children from poor rural areas in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka. Some children and their families walked for miles in the heat with bare feet, and at one point there was almost a stampede - such was the need and desperation to have the chance of an education.
The gratitude and thanks given by the children and their families really is the most humbling feeling ever, and in turn we thank all our TFT supporters who enable us to work directly at the grass-roots and make this most significant difference in helping change the futures of families imprisoned in poverty.
The event was covered by ITN news and broadcast nationwide.
