“A gift is pure when it is given from the heart to the right person at the right time and at the right place, and when we expect nothing in return” ~ The Bhagavad Gita
Is the English translation of the parting words the Principal of Chembiyanpattu GTMS, Point Pedro told us. Chembiyanpattu is a small hamlet which is about 25 KM away from Point pedro town and it is one of the places that had experienced the wrath of man made destructions as well as natural destructions.

So we asked from Sarveswaran, a Lecturer at the University of Jaffna to help us in finding a school which is in need. Sarves contacted the Provincial Education Authorities and on their advice found this school. It could not have been a more deserving school. If not for this effort from Sarves and the authorities, very easily the books we donated could have ended up as a drop in the ocean had it been given to a school with more books and hence lost its value. Also we didn’t want to donate random books, so we obtained the needed booklist from the school itself. They took two days to compile a complete list with input from all teachers and sent us the list of books needed. hSenid made sure that the whole list requested was provided to them.
