Visions of Hope Project's new classroom building

"The Calhoun School in New York City gathered money for tsunami victims and sent $4,000 dollars to the ICES Foundation, Sri Lanka in 2005. Another $4,000 dollars which we would like to send directly to benefit the children (of Pandiruppu) who were affected by the tsunami. We would find it particularly meaningful, if our capital would be used for a classroom in which art activities for the children would be available and encouraged."
