Having coordinated the Rotary National Youth Exchange program last year and by continuing to keep in close touch with the beneficiary youths from North & East, our Rotary Peace ’07 & Ambassadorial ’09 scholar Rtn Pushpi Weerakoon realized the need to provided a permanent center in the conflict affected area to provide educational & vocational training for their positive growth. Responding to her appeals to help set up the centre Rotarians, US Diaspora, friends & family donated stationary and sports goods. Rotary club of Colombo West took up the responsibility of fully equipping the computer lab within the centre. Aid Et Action an INGO reputed to conduct vocational training courses free of charge while also managing the day to day conduct of the centre have offered their services to sustain the project initiated. Sinwa Holdings offered free paint to refurbish the building given free by the government to Pushpi. In keeping with the Youth Empowerment theme she has also enlisted support from several Rotaract and Interact clubs to volunteer labour and resources to help materialize the dreams of our North & East youths.
