Dear friends and supporters,

At the beginning of the year we’d like to take a quick look back: the diagram to the left clearly shows that since its foundation in 1995 our school has constantly grown. Whereas in the beginning it counted approximately 100 students, in 2004 schooling and training was already provided to 700 children, young people and adults. That was before the Tsunami hit on 26 December 2004 and left the owf facilities completely destroyed. Today, on our newly built school campus, we offer free educational programs from pre-school to professional training to more than 1,100 students.

While the school was growing we also continuously enlarged our curriculum. Initially the focus was on English courses and programs for pre-schoolers and women. Now, under the direction of one of our former pupils, Mr Prabath Wijesekara De Zoysa, the school’s curriculum includes subjects such as music, sports, photography, computer and IT courses and since 2010 language courses in Tamil.

Under the section „ news “ on our website, you will find some impressions of the many activities taking place at the school of one world foundation.
