About the HelpKids Centre

The HelpKids Education Centre provides early education and after school tuition classes to assist children from low income families in a community in Colombo.

 

Our goal is to see each child that is enrolled in the centre complete his/her education at least up to the General Certificate of Education (GCE) O Level qualification in Sri Lanka, which is conducted by the Department of Examinations of the Ministry of Education.

 

We then encourage the children to pursue higher education or a form of vocational training.

Our Mission

Our mission at The HelpKids Education Centre is to focus on the whole child by providing a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for children; a place for children to bloom into responsible, considerate and contributing members of society.

The HelpKids Education Centre wants all children to have the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually by exploring, playing and learning with others in a happy, safe and healthy environment.

Our Education Programs

Early Childhood Education Program

The Montessori school provides early education and life skills for children aged 4-5.

 

Life Skills-Based Education Program

Life Skills-Based Education Program (LSBEP) is a form of education that focuses on cultivating personal life skills needed for everyday life. It is available to all past pupils of the Early Education Program as well as their siblings and other members of the community. Learning and cultivating basic life skills will help a child become independent, responsible, caring and a valuable member of society. As a result, they will begin to understand themselves and others better. They will learn skills that will help them to think and change and to work towards breaking the cycle of poverty which is not just limited to money or poverty in living conditions. Poverty in potential and thinking is the greatest poverty of all.  Children need to be encouraged to think beyond poverty as a lack of finances and to begin to think of solutions to everyday issues they may face so that they will be equipped to face challenges. 

Scholarship Program

Some children who come through our Education Centre go on to further study and vocational training. We have established a scholarship program where we can support them financially through this process. Your donations will help these children gain important skills and opportunities to achieve their goals in life.
