Abayam Youth – Lockdown Fundraising Success!

Abayam Youth has managed to organise, conduct and complete a tremendous fundraising effort, despite lockdown, from 20-26th July 2020. Their target was to walk, run or cycle 435 km, the distance between Point Pedro and Thirukkovil (the northern and eastern most points of Abayam’s work in Sri Lanka), to raise £750 to photocopy practise examination papers for A-Level students in the Eastern Province who could not afford home computers. Abayam Youth managed to exceed not only the distance, by covering 463 km, but also the target funds raised, to a fantastic sum of £2827. Look at the inspiring photographs of the next generation of Abayam below!

Abayam Youth has sustained their innovative remote fundraising efforts through the prolonged COVID pandemic, with a 2020 Christmas quiz and raffle, and a 2021 Easter bake-off and raffle.
