Presentation Transcript

The Overseas School of Colombo has a long tradition of working with the local community through its service projects. It now runs a range of activities that help OSC students connect with local concerns in Colombo.

The destructive December 26th Tsunami helped focus the work on relief and rehabilitation along affected coastlines.
