Siva Poomi School Trust




The Siva Poomi school for special needs children has been serving the Jaffna, Sri Lanka community since 2004. The school generally has about two hundred students ranging from ages five to eighteen. It is a day school which starts at eight o’clock, serves lunch and stops at two thirty. The school owns two buses, and most of the kids are picked up from home and dropped off. Without this school, these children would be confined to their homes, their learning would suffer, and the parents would not have a break, or perhaps be unable to pursue their job.

The concept is that when the children graduate from the school, the centre will provide training and employment for their future.

Our sincere thanks to Mr & Mrs V. Kailasapillai and the Manitha Neyam Trust for their generosity towards the special needs children of Jaffna. Also, our congratulations to Dr. Aru Thirumurugan and the Principal, Mrs. K. Kugathasan and the teachers for their tireless efforts on behalf of the special needs children of Jaffna. My sincere thanks, too, go to Mr. V. Jeyasingam who is the coordinator for Manitha Neyam Trust – because of his efforts the centre has come to life.
