November 8th, 2009 About the project
We’ve been running art workshops with disadvantaged children across Sri Lanka for 9 years. The aim has always been to give such children more playtime and to raise funds to support them though fun.
Towards the end of each year, we’ve run sessions where the children colour Christmas themed images which we the use to make Christmas cards – hence the name of the project. The cards are designed and put together by local volunteers and then sold across the world.
Every single pound, dollar or rupee goes back into the children’s homes. We’ve provided everything from electricity and water to fun days out, a brand new playground and hundreds of meals. And, as you’ll see from the pictures, a whole lot of colour.
