The Hambantota Rotary Club is delivering an English Education Project with a group of young people aged between 10 and 15 from Bundala, a small village located on the south coast of Sri Lanka. The project has been requested by the Bundala School to assist disadvantaged Tamil young people learn skills that will help open up greater opportunities for them in the future.
A creative addition to this project is being facilitated by lkCreate, a project by Steph Vajda of Ferment Collaborate (formerly SpeakOut Events). These workshops involve monthly creative arts workshops using film, photography and visual arts to create short films and ‘zines’. The content created will be showcased for the Bundala community at a celebration event at the end of the program’s initial 6 month delivery phase, as well as being accessible through the lkCreate website. These creative workshops aim to encourage young people to develop confidence in the way they see the world, to break down barriers which limit their ability to do so and to be creative while learning.
