Current Facilities

The Charles Education Centre (CEC) Charity manages the Mahavilachchiya Education Centre (MEC), which presently holds classes in a two storied building. The site was obtained and with the approval of the local AGA (Assistant Government Agent) and the building was donated by Mr & Mrs C Charles for the Children of Mahavilachchiya.
The CEC, through the Mahavilachchiya Centre, provides free education in the following areas:

  • English for all ages
  • Information Technology (IT) for children from grade 6 to Advanced Level (AL)
  • Montessori for preschool children

The IT teacher’s salary is funded by Hayleys Group Corporate Social Responsibility Department. Hayleys is one of the largest business organisations in Sri Lanka.

The CEC also provides financial help to children who wish to further their studies. Pictures of the Education Centre at Mahavilachchiya are available in the Picture Gallery.
