Islamic Relief Sri Lanka recently distributed bicycles to 24 students from Sennal Zahira School in Sammanthurai Division, to help them overcome the difficulties they face walking long distances to reach school. The project was part of Islamic Relief’s Catch-up & Return to Education Through Better Learning Environment in Sri Lanka (i-CARES), which is funded by Islamic Relief Canada.

For many students in rural areas, walking to school can be a major challenge due to the distance and lack of reliable transportation. Providing bicycles can significantly improve their access to education and help them achieve better academic performance. Islamic Relief Sri Lanka is committed to promoting education and improving the learning environment for vulnerable children and youth in Sri Lanka, and initiatives like i-CARES are an important part of achieving that goal
