They left the Diocese as early as 6 am to reach the Dumbara No: 2 Tamil Vidyalaya in Ingiriya. This school is situated in a deprived area in the Tea plantation with 126 children ranging from Grade 1 to 9. The Diocesan staff organised the programme through its Welfare society with the assistance of Rev Asokarajah – Vicar of Christ Church, Ingiriya, his wife Mrs. Jeevanaayagi and with the Youth fellowship.
