These sisters are setting on the temple steps at Sri Wewekarama temple in Godagama, Sri Lanka. The older of the two girls is a student in the village preschool program that my wife and I support.
I've been going to Sri Lanka for 1 to 2 months every year since February 2005. Along with my wife and friends in Singapore, we have been helping to restore a village that was destroyed in the December 2004 tsunami. We work with a village temple that is affiliated with a much larger temple in Colombo. First we rebuilt homes, then provided equipment and funds to restart home businesses. After first establishing a preschool program, we began a computer school last year. In December 2010, we'll open a dedicated computer building so the teachers and equipment can be moved from the temple dining room. 
From time to time, I'll include other photos from the village in these daily postings.
