Laptops for Ladies is a charity that aims to utilise laptops as tools to empower young women in Sri Lanka.
We understand that it isn't easy for many young women in Sri Lanka to continue their studies. Poverty and tradition may take take their lives in a completely different direction. However we strongly believe that by giving these women the freedom to study whenever and wherever they like, they can take control of this direction.
Some girls may not want to follow the same lives as their relatives and in association with the Upcountry Education Development Society, we will continue to carefully select the young women who will truly benefit from breaking away from the cycle. We believe that this will include those who have a thirst for self development, the motivation to leave the cycle and the curiosity for something new.
It is remarkable what differences can be made through the use of a laptop. They are our current future, and development has been hugely aided through the use of the internet. It is this which we believe will be an invaluable asset that will change the lives of Sri Lankan ladies: an opportunity.
Regular updates will continue to be posted, so keep an eye out for the progress that is being made and become a part of this new project!
Any feedback would be hugely appreciated to help us to improve our mission to make a difference and change a life.
