Navy to develop 8 underprivileged schools

In connection with the 70th anniversary of Sri Lanka Navy, the sea going arm of the country has launched a social responsibility initiative, under the directives and guidance of Navy Commander Vice Admiral Nishantha Ulugetenne to develop selected underprivileged schools in the country this year.

The prime motive of the project is to create a more conducive learning environment for the children - the future generation of the country. Accordingly, this timely project was launched in the Western, Eastern, North Central, Northwestern, Southeastern, Southern and Northern Naval Commands on April 19.

Financial contribution extended voluntarily by all officers and sailors from their monthly salaries is utilized for the project, while the Navy also enables its able manpower required for the construction work.

After contributing to the success of the humanitarian operation to liberate the nation from the brutality of the LTTE terrorism that has battered the country for nearly three decades, the Navy throws its weight behind various development projects of the government, to help achieve its National Policy Framework ‘Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour’, by contributing Navy’s skilled manpower and other resources.

A financial allocation of Rs.4.5 million was made available to each Naval Command to develop eight underprivileged schools, selected by seven Naval Commands, islandwide to support the education of children schooling in remote areas, with less facilities.
