“Education perfects us. It is the heartbeat of a perfect life.” As it implies, education is not a simple word. It covers a vast area. Simply education means life. Our whole life depends on our education. Normally in the society, the word education means learning in a school, university or some other institution.
In the project, “Tuition beyond the country code” we hoped to help such kind of children with our knowledge. This is not an ordinary educational project. It was a friendly international project to help children to learn and perfect their lives.
This special project was done as a joint project with Leo Club of Metro Methodist College KL (O), Malaysia, Leo Club of Horana Metro, Leo Club of Katuwawala, Leo Club of Piliyandala and Leo Club of Rattanapitiya. Target group of this project was a group of poor children (7-12 years of age) who haven’t enough financial background to go to private tuition classes. They were from the nearby areas where Metro Methodist College KL has been situated.
There were 15-20 children of the age group of 7-12 years. We grouped children according to their ages and conducted the session. In the teaching session Leo Isuru and Leo Chathuranga took the responsibility of mathematics session. Basics for little brains were focused accordingly and step by step. It was a friendly education session. Little boys and girls were so keen to learn from us and we were glad that we could help them. English grammar lessons and pronunciation session was done with the help of other Leos from A2 and Metro Methodist college.
