01 Computers for rural communities

In the SDZ area many of the communities are very isolated. Several of the community centres and schools have requested a computer so local residents may learn essential computer skills without having to travel several kilometers to the Nanasala through difficult terrain. How many computers and how much per computer?

02 Materials for work for women projects

LHT has excellent connections to markets for low skilled handicraft projects. Such projects provide essential employment

03 Kataragama Pada Yatra foot pilgrimage

04 Sponsorship programme for tsunami and conflict affected youth of the East Coast

05 Organic farming

07 Environmental education programme

06 LHT operation

The Living Heritage Trust runs its operation as cheaply as possibly so that most funding can go towards projects. All international staff are unpaid, living in shared and very basic accommodation, transport is largely public, on foot or by bike and we share our offices with the Nanasala. We are transparent in our accounting and calculate that annually it will cost us $10,000 to cover our overheads. Part of this will be funded by various sustainability measures and by our corporate affiliates but donations towards our running costs are essential to our continuing operations.

07 Sponsorship of the annual fundraising event

Please note that we charge a 5% commission on all donations over $100.
