Local News from Sri Lanka: The national movement “Jeevanabhimani” begins as a rural-wide program to develop the attitudes and abilities of young people while preserving their dignity.
According to a concept of President Maithripala Sirisena, the program will be introduced island-wide in the future. The headquarters of this organization was created with the involvement of Secretary to President Mr. Udaya R. Seneviratne at the Lake House building in Colombo.
The program focuses on identifying and addressing major youth and youth problems and creating a better future for them. The specialty of these programs as a community-based program is to tackle youth problems in their own setting. This will give them the context they need to create a better future.
Speaking on the event, President Secretary Mr. Udaya R. Seneviratne said that creating a better tomorrow for the youth is the primary duty of the government.
The presidential secretary said today the drugs destroyed the youth. He further indicated that with the president’s guidance, a large-scale program is being introduced to eliminate the country’s drug threat. He also said there was a need for an effective program to revive and rejuvenate the life of the drug-lost youth.
The President said the new program,’ Jeevanabhimani,’ would make a tremendous contribution to this and all people need to be effective in supporting these programs.
