University of Nottingham students hope to help victims of war in Sri Lanka
A GROUP of students at the University of Nottingham are looking to set up a centre in Sri Lanka.
Future for Jaffna is a charitable organisation which aims to relieve poverty in the Jaffna area.
The project is run by 19 university students who will be using their business knowledge and skills to help those who need it.
It has been set up in response to the civil war between the Sri Lankan army and Tiger Tamil rebels, which has left many women without husbands. Often, these women have four or five children to be raised on their own. Much of the fighting was in the Jaffna area.

In the next year, the charity aims to set up a business centre in Jaffna, to teach widows and other students business skills, help them with learning English, provide business mentoring and improve their agricultural skills.
The charity will also help set up a creche for woman with very young children.
The group is looking to raise £10,000 to realise their ambitions.
