Tea Leaf Trust: 2017 Partner Report

[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]Partner Report to Givology, October 2017[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]Who we are[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Tea Leaf Trust is a UK registered charity (No: 1123427). We work exclusively in the tea estate areas of Sri Lanka where we run two schools for 18 to 24 year olds in Maskeliya and Nuwara Eliya (both in Central Province). We are registered as a non-profiting making business in Sri Lanka – Tea Leaf Vision (Guarantee) Ltd. Our focus and expertise is English language and professional development. However, we also do a lot of personal development work developing students’ coping mechanisms and emotional health in the face of complex social issues.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Around 80% of male tea estate workers are alcoholics, with 83% of women suffering from domestic violence. In a country that has the 4th highest suicide rate in the world, young people from the tea estates are particularly vulnerable.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What we do[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]We opened our first school (TLV Maskeliya) in January 2010 and have recently started our second school in the hill country’s tourist centre of Nuwara Eliya (TLV NE). We run full-time, free one-year main diplomas and through the curricular we teach, we offer Basic English classes to children at over 30 local government schools through a ‘training the trainer’ type programme. In addition we run summer activity programmes based around health and nutrition and service projects throughout the year to support the local communities where we work.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]Our partnership with Givology[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]This has been very positive with over $10,000 donated for projects and a special grant for the renovation of our first school building ($5,000) and a grant of $1,250 for our #TipATeaPicker Campaign.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]Our overall impact[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]All in all, since we started in January 2010, we have supported:[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Main Diploma = 937 young people (our employment rate is over 70%)[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Advanced Diploma = 80 young people (15 of these constitute our staff team)[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Basic English Programme = 1,483 young people [/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Community English Programme = 10,187 children (from over 30 local government schools)[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Service projects = 126,854 community members (16,894 hours volunteered since 2014)[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]#TipATeaPicker Campaign Update[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Public Donations = £3,800[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Givology have matched = £1,000[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Private Individual matchfunding leveraged by Givology donation = £1,000[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]Total raised = £5,800[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]The £5,800 raised went towards establishing our new centre in Nuwara Eliya. It enabled us to employ staff and teach three-month English classes to 101 of the poorest students in the area. This would not have been possible without the partnership and profile given to this match funding campaign by Givology.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]We would like to run the same campaign annually and hope that Givology will partner with us again. [/font]
