Tea Leaf Vision

Tea Leaf Vision works hard every day to deliver high quality, accessible educational programmes, both full-time and part time, to young people and children from the tea estates surrounding the Maskeliya area of Central Province, Sri Lanka. One of the main ways we help to create change is to improve the employability of youth and choice of employment options outside the tea estates by facilitating the development of high-standard English language skills and professionalism.
