Sri Lanka’s demographic transition is having dramatic impacts on education and health as well as the economy. By 2036, more than 22% of the population will be over 60 and there will be 61 dependents per 100 adults. Unless the labor force and employment rates increase, a very small number of employed persons will need to provide for a very large number of non-working people, straining the budgets of families and the government.
The primary focus of this project is to enhance the teaching of English as a second language at the Lakpahana Adventist Seminary & College (LASC), Candy to help students further their prospects for higher education and employment.
LASC will employ 3 teachers with a minimum qualification of a bachelor's degree with experience in teaching English. The current teaching staff also will be upskilled to better teach English to current grades in both the Sinhala Language stream and English Language stream of education.
Key Areas of Investment
- Engage qualified ESL Teachers
- Upskilling of existing Teachers
- School Resources
