Connecting Children Across the World

Nallathanniya Village, Sri Lanka

The children of Hawaii sent hand-drawn pictures to the children of Nallathanniya Village. The children of Nallathanniya also made pictures for the children of Hawaii. We like the idea that the Hawaii team wants to establish a connection between the children of Hawaii and Sri Lanka. The only drawback is the language barrier. We are trying to get an English teacher to help out in putting the Nallathanniya children’s dreams and ideas on paper so that they can correspond with each other as pen pals.

We also want to help identify the children’s hidden talents and inform their parents. Then their parents can help their children develop their talents and we can give them opportunities to expose them.

This will be another first for the Transformational Community Development team.
