Periya Sandhi Village Bilingual Primary School is located in Periya Sandhi Village in the Puttalam district. The main source of income of these students is through either farming or daily wage laboring. They cannot afford to install an RO plant with their meagre wages. This school is special because 130 children from all backgrounds- Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim come together to learn in harmony
Students had to walk to school carrying clean water from their homes. Sometimes they use well water from the neighboring houses. However, this water was found unfit to be consumed due to its high levels of mineral contaminations. The principal of this school made a request to Gammadda for an RO plant.
The installation of a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water purification plant will benefit the students of Periya Sandhi Tamil Vidyalayam and the surrounding villages as well. A kind donation by the Mushin family in remembrance of late Mr. A.R.M Mushin, late Mrs. Kairun Nissa Mushin and late Ms. Shyana Mushin made this dream of clean water into a reality.
Work on the RO plant has been completed and Gammadda hopes to hand the new clean water supply to the students tomorrow, 23/8/2022.
