Early Childhood Education

School bags for plantation children

Every year, children of Dilmah tea garden workers complete their early childhood education in Foundation run Child Development Centres and enter into government run schools in the area to commence their primary education. As a gesture of support, the Foundation provides these children with school bags and other necessary stationary items. In 2013, 800 youngsters who completed their education at these Centres received school bags, water bottle, lunch box, pencil box and books to embark on the next phase of their education.
