Ayeshika is a school girl who studies in grade 11 Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya at present. She is one of girls who was designing webs and blogs under the evillage project situated inside the computer lab of Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya. Ayeshika does not have her father unfortunately with her and she lives with her Mother and Sister. Both the sisters come to Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya and were fine with the studies. Ayeshika has more talents than students of her age. If we forget the fact that these students have not had enough teachers in their school while they were very young she has showed a fine capableness for education and other traditional processes which All average Sri Lankan girls have. From Grade one she is the monitor of Her grade. She got the high marks for religion and technical subjects. Students are very reluctant to go front of a gathering and address them. Ayeshika does not belong to that category and as she does Dancing from the childhood she is an aesthetic girl.
There is no any association in the school where Ayeshika does not participate. She once was the chairman of Sinhala Literary association junior category and did her service to Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya. Every year she participates for English, Sinhala Language days and has performed there nicely. One of the milestone of her student hood is she joined the village project. From this point she could learn basics of computing and Select to the junior e-team of the school. Then she did the upper computer course which is conducted by Aruna Sir our computer Teacher and finished it with satisfactory demonstration of web designing and web blogging. She started her blog from there and started broadcasting herself to the whole world. Ayeshika prefers to write on Any subject on Sinhala. At the monument she is learning English very hard and she will finish it with colours we believe.
Another mile stone of her student hood is Mother Sri Lanka debate series organized by the Ministry Of education, Sri Lanka with collaboration of Presidents office. This series of Debates held at several places island wide. Firstly there was the Zonal Level competition and from there Batuwangala MahaVidyalaya Won the first place. Ayeshika elaborated on old Sri Lankan tank building technologies and livelihood of Ancient Sri Lankan people. She compared to today Society as well and built some nice arguments. She did her best to become the Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya the First of Zonal Level. Then we went to District level. The Function was organized at one of leading colleges in Galle, Sri Lanka and our team consisted Ayeshika and another five members. However the competition was very high as the schools from each and every corner of the Galle district was there. All day alone the completions were in progress and Finally Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya won the second place resulting us to be participate for the Grade finale of the provincial Level. The Provincial level competition was there at University of Ruhuna Sri Lanka and BMV won the Second place from there also.

Facing the challenges of poor family economy she never gave up giving her Children a good Education. Even Some times they didn’t have food for breakfast. Two sisters came to school with a big hope of One Fine day.
In November 2009, Ayeshika’s German foster mother, Mrs. Annette Willmann visited Ayeshika’s home and noticed that there was no electricity in the house and that the two girls were studying using kerosene lamps. Mrs. Willmann then decided to fully sponsor all the necessary works and the CEB application fee to get electricity into Ayeshika’s home. Miss Heike, who yearly spends a few months in Sri Lanka to do social work, acted in Mrs. Willmann’s name, making the necessary money transactions and keeping Ayeshika’s foster parents informed. Miss Heike reports that Mrs. Willmann is very delighted to see the photos taken of the two girls sitting at their fully lighted study desks.
