According to the current pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 spreading throughout the world, children in Kahathuduwa area badly needed proper computer facilities for their online education. They found it very difficult to carry on their online education successfully due to many problems. Unavailability of data, instability of communication network and a lack of computers are some of them. Also, there are more members in a family who have to learn through online at a time.
So, as a solution to this problem and for the betterment of these children, with the guidance and assistance of the Ambalangoda Sumana Nanda Thero and Dhamma School teachers, the Dozen Group of Sri Lanka decided to donate the Sumana Dharmayathanaya with a fully-fledged computer centre for children in need of online education around the area. It was opened on 04th July, 2021.
This computer centre with all facilities such as computers with headsets, speakers and a camera system has been provided with free of charge. Children get free data and there will be no electricity bills for them to bear. Around 360 students in that area can share these computer facilities at a scheduled time. This is open from 06 a.m. to 06 p.m. everyday.
