We are very excited to announce the opening of our second learning center in Sri Lanka! Learning Center Kekirawa will offer its first program by next week. The Kekirawa Learning Center (KLC) is the second learning center to be opened in Sri Lanka and is headed by our Community Hero Sampath Sri Senawatte.

On March 8, the local and global teams of the GSE2 program, united for the opening of the 20th BOOKBRIDGE Learning Center. The GSE2 team has been working together virtually across the globe since October 2016 with members dialing in from South Africa, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Germany, Australia and Sri Lanka. After the initial research stages, they developed a business plan and convinced Hilti Foundation to invest 20,000 Euro into the learning center.

Prior to the official ceremony, monks blessed the building. The ceremony was moderated by Sampath and speeches were given by Sampath, Stefan representing the GSE2 team and Monika from BOOKBRIDGE. The school director from Bastian Silva College gave a great endorsement to the learning center encouraging all parents to send their students for courses. Following the formal opening ceremony, community members were invited to take a tour of the center learn more about the upcoming courses and other offerings. More than ten registrations were collected during throughout the day!

We wish Sampath and his local team all the best in the coming months!
