Social Projects

1. TrainMyBrain

This project started in the year 2006 as "Children Park Fund". The idea and support came by me, E. Oliver, management of all projects has been done by WSM Dias and sons from Thotulagalla. We have built children parks at remoted schools around Haputale. Schools in Thotulagalla, Pitaratmalie, Moussakelle, Kahagalla, Blackwood and Wiharagalla got each 2-3 toys like double sea-saws, climbing towers and double swings. But by the time we came to know about more urgent needs than children parks. Students and teachers asked for toilets, water, shoes, etc. That was the time that the "Children Park Fund" became the "TrainMyBrain" project ( Most of donations came from me and my family, friends, German Sri Lanka Forums but also by highlighted hotels, guesthouses, internet cafe and shops of this Haputale homepage.
