Lifecycle Library

The Nursery School building programme across Sri-Lanka provides education to over 500 children per year. However, it was recognised that these schools needed support to improve general education levels. The building of a teacher training centre ensued in a centralised location to support all twelve schools. Resource packs were created to ensure these teaching aids supported and enhanced the Montessori teaching methodology. Additionally, a library was erected to support some of the schools and their local communities.

The Library was a basic building measuring sixteen square feet. A resource pack was provided together with a minimal number of books. The funding for the project was provided by Kyung Won Lee who performed a Classical Music concert in Surrey. Additional funding is required to provide additional books and a computer.
