Established in 1995, SHIVA Charity promotes education in Asia, (mainly Nepal and Sri Lanka). To the amazement of larger charities, we were able to start our construction of 28 beautiful brick and tile nursery schools in Ampara District, within weeks of the tsunami. Now we maintain these schools, pay the teachers, and renew equipment and books. We would like to set up a teacher training and resource centre to service all of these nursery schools, and others in Sri Lanka.
In Nepal we have many projects helping schools with equipment, teachers' pay, children's welfare, and the overall quality of teaching. We also improve buildings and classrooms, in order to give children a better environment in which to learn. We are a small, but hardworking and dedicated charity, and we see the desperate need for good teacher training and resource centres in both countries. These centres should provide educational equipment for child based learning.
