Islamic Relief Sri Lanka initiated the Easy Access to Education in Pottuvil Sri Lanka project (ACAEP) to address the challenge of low school attendance among vulnerable students in the area. The project focuses on providing bicycles to students who live far away from schools and were unable to attend due to lockdowns and isolation during the pandemic.

The ACAEP project aims to improve access to education and safety for vulnerable students where 34 vulnerable students were assessed and finalized to receive bicycles to ease their commute to school.

Through the ACAEP project, Islamic Relief Sri Lanka has enabled vulnerable students to access education in a comfortable environment, with improved attendance and academic performance. The project has not only provided bicycles but also instilled a sense of confidence and motivation in students to continue their education despite the challenges they face.
