Tea Leaf Trust has had amazing support which has enabled us to hit a number of milestones. Here are a few of our earlier ones, which we are so proud of! We’ll continue to update this page so you can see what we’ve achieved in the 8 years since we started.

Milestones – we’ve had a few! The biggest one was keeping to that initial commitment to do something relevant for the tea plantation community, but thanks to the fantastic support of a lot of wonderful people, Tea Leaf Trust has come a long way in 8 years!

This section is still being added to, but the video below shows you where Tea Leaf Trust started from and where we got to in our first 3 years of hard work!

If you haven’t got 4 minutes to watch the video, here is a little infographic that charts our milestones from deciding to start a school and then leaving Blighty to do it! You may need your reading glasses though – it will be updated to have bigger font.

Tea Leaf Trust arrives in Sri Lanka in 2009 and so begins a year of working out what we are going to do and how we are going to do it! A steep learning curve for all involved but we get there and open our doors up to the youth of the Maskeliya tea plantations in January 2010.

Here we chart our milestones from arriving in Sri Lanka to the opening of our centre. A very busy year full of thrills and spills. Recruiting teachers, relevant lesson plans for 18-24 year olds and designing and English programme for 7-12 year olds was only the half of it! Locating a building a picking the area was a huge hurdle – but we did it and we’re still going strong.

We will be updating the section, but in the meantime, here’s a taster of what went on – you may need your reading glasses. The infographic will be updated with bigger font.
