Volunteer Resources in Sri Lanka

As most of you know, I'm on a little mission to help out some kids around the world. I recently arrived in Sri Lanka and began two new volunteer projects: in the morning, I am teaching conversational english to young monks at a monastary and in the afternoon, supporting children at an orphanage.
For a variety of reasons, I don't have photos of these projects but I can promise you that each and every one of the children are incredibly unique and spirited, and also in deep need of resources. The monestary is in dire need of a computer that will help the young boys (who study very hard and are very gentle, special kids) further their education. The orphange needs basically everything, so I've chosen to focus on food and diapers: both basic needs that we take for granted in Canada on a daily basis. 
I'll be with these projects for 3 weeks, so I hope to collect funds and purchase the items-leaving them as donations upon my departure. Go fund me is telling me how much your support will mean, and indeed it will mean a lot, but it's not about me; it's about the kids who just don't have the same opportunites that we do. Everytime I travel I am more and more humbled and I promise any donation will be well used. I have no doubt that your contributions will bring goodness right back back to you.
If you want more details, please let me know and forgive my slow response while I don't have wifi access. 

Thank you so much, friends and family for all your ongoing support. Love.
