I believe 500£ should be enough to make an impact on Sri Lankan education. The reason is that Sri Lankan currency is weaker than the pound and 500£ can be converted in 100k rubles (local currency). This money should be enough to support a Chemistry lab at the girl’s high school I identified in the ex-war area (http://www.vogauk.co.uk/project.html at least some of the equipment) or to support other projects and the purchase of other equipment at the school. In case of a natural disaster which would prevent me to use the money to support a public school, still it would be possible to use them to fund the Tea Leaf foundation (http://tealeaftrust.com/work/). I got confirmation from the founder that 500£ should be enough to buy them a few computers or train a woman teacher in a subject which would help tea leaf pickers. Thanks to the currency exchange, it can be possible to make an impact, that’s the idea
I want to make a YouTube channel where I make videos about Artificial Intelligence and technology and I want to keep that up for a long period of time. Making videos doesn’t cost that much money, but costs time and effort if you like. The prize money can help me set it up with some equipment and so on and kick start it. It shouldn’t require much money to keep it up after that.
