My Dream School
My Dream School is a project by International Movement for Community Development (IMCD) to provide underprivileged schools with much needed facilities. This initiative was motivated by the drawings by children of underprivileged schools which depicted their dream school when we requested them to express their hopes and dreams. We identify needy schools via referrals and conduct a need analysis after a field visit. These ideas are made a reality through the generous contributions and collaboration of various organizations and individuals. The project aims schools to create a stimulating learning ambience for students. The developments are supported by Sri Lankan donors. A partial contribution is made by Slovakian donors via Samaya Foundation.
International Movement for Community Development (IMCD) is an alliance of youth, established in 2012, with the vision to be the global role model in community focused social development. We are a registered Voluntary Social Services/Non-Governmental Organization (registration number L-149504) working towards the core principle of “From the society, to the society, with the society”.
Samaya is an initiative which started with two youth from Slovakia who wanted to improve the quality of education in Sri Lankan elementary schools. Their vision is to provide a well-rounded education for kids in Sri Lanka. SAMAYA aims to financially support needy schools in Sri Lanka every year in collaboration with IMCD which is the Sri Lankan partner.
