The Dust Project’s story

We’re aiming high on this one… a new school for our community! We passionately believe this is the most valuable, long-lasting gift we could possibly give to our local kids— an education. 

For more information, please visit

Our school kids in Irupalai village (on the outskirts of Jaffna) have been through a lot over the past few years. The old community church was converted into a temporary school many years ago, but due to extreme age, weather and disrepair, it soon began to fall around the ears (literally!) of the children as they studied...  

The younger year groups were situated temporarily in a local home, but this is no longer available to use. We’ve been able, to a certain degree, to fund and update the old church/temporary school, but it’s simply not big enough for our community's needs.

Currently, Paalam International School Jaffna (our school), can accommodate 40 students.  Our goal is 120!

Our School is an English-speaking School— which will be vital in coming years to landing the best and most diverse jobs in the country. The students range in age from 4 to 16 years, right up through General Level (O Level) and Advanced Level (A Level). In the new school, we will be focusing on the Children’s 6 core subjects— English, Maths, Science, Social Studies, Word Building and Literature. The children will learn Sinhala, Tamil and English languages, as well as Sri Lankan history. As the students get older, they can choose electives in the Science Fields, Business, Languages (French/Spanish), Arts, Culture (Human Resources), English Literature, etc.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
