Amakuliya Primary School

51 children studying between year 1 and year 5 attend Amakuliya Primary School (Principal: Mrs Dhammika Jayasinghe) situated in the Puttalam district. Each day the children must walk to school about 4km on difficult tracks just to receive an education. Scarcity in resources are prevalent including the lack of safe drinking water. We are initially planning to donate a RO water filter to the school to help bridge their scarcity In resources and help with the prevention of kidney diseases.

We have tested the water. TDS level of this temple is 650. Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in water are some organic and inorganic materials, which include minerals and ions that are dissolved in a particular quantity in water. TDS Level in parts per million(ppm) 300-500 is less acceptable. A high TDS level, however, can affect the taste and odour of water. Reverse Osmosis removes TDS by forcing the water, under pressure, through a synthetic membrane.

We have donated a RO Filter to this school. The Principal madam, Mrs. Jayasinghe appreciated this donation.
