The event was financially supported by Dr.Nishanie Bajramović (BDS). The organising of the event took approximately 3 weeks, and was coordinated by the Principle of the school Mr.P.G. Ananda
The purpose of the event was to help children of this rural school with books and materials for their school uniforms so they may be helped in their education. Saris and uniform were offered to all the staff members. ADMCBCC also provided two Scholarships to two children with financial difficulties of the school. Scholarship is to facilitate continuity of their education until they leave school.
The event took place entire day and ADIBT also provided building materials and school children and their parents gave their support in rebuilding the path to Budu geya. This road was washed away by the torrential rain in the previous months.
All the teachers and the pupils of the school diligently participated in organising entertainment, which included traditional Sri-Lankan dancing, singing, poems. This was to create a wonderful magical setting for the event.
