The 18th Little Library - A historic Milestone

Created on 24 August 2012

The 18th CUP Little Library was ceremoniously opened on 4th August 2012 at the Lama Samajaya premises in Thulasiripura, Trincomalee, in the presence of a large gathering of happy & enthusiastic Children and their proud Parents & Well-wishers. 

It was also a momentous event.  For the first time in the history of CUP and the Little Library Initiative, a generous Donor from overseas - the United States of America – was instrumental in funding this entire project.  A group of kids from North Carolina, led by Miss Olivia Simpson and including Ms juliet jensen and Jennifer Falchi collected the requisite funds by organizing a Fundraiser in the form of a Stage Play.  Thus, the CUP has entered a new phase, spreading it’s wings overseas.!!!

The occasion was graced by CUP Officials Harsha Gomes – Vice President, Nadee Dissanayake – Secretary, M.M.Maznavi – Treasurer, Manjuma Salgadu, Nishantha Perera, Rasika Udagama, Sasanka Udagama and Dilhara Karunanayake.
