‘Nenasawiya 2020’ is a project coming under the series, ‘Go Projects 2020’ conducted by ‘perabeats’, the Official Media Club of University of Peradeniya. The project was initiated last year with the objective of providing educational aid for the G.C.E.O/L students of areas with poor infrastructure, especially within the Kandy District. The project was carried out for a period of three weeks for the students of Kobbakaduwa Junior School. Last time the project consisted of a seminar series for Science and Mathematics followed by a donation campaign of library books.
This year the project appeared in a different way dealing with the consequences of the new normal accompanied by the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘Nenasawiya 2020’ was held on a social media platform, this time focusing the students who somehow, have access to internet. A Facebook page and a group as well as a Youtube channel were created for the students to join and get help from us in the subject areas of Science, Mathematics and English language.
This year, the project is planned to be conducted in two phases. Starting from a motivational program, phase1 will be carried out over a period of two months basically, using the above mentioned social media platforms. Following that will be the phase 2 which is planned to conduct visiting a school selected.
Our prime objective is to upgrade the results of the students by providing them with motivation and required knowledge for the examination despite having certain difficulties.
