SJB launches “Sakwala” Pilot project for children

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Leader Sajith Premadasa launched the “Sakwala”, a Modern Computer Screen and Computer Donation Pilot Project to empower a generation of talented children with modern technology.

The launch was held yesterday (30).

Premadasa, in his speech, mentioned that the launch of the Sakwala pilot project was done despite several parties opposing such a great idea.

“Late C.W.W. Kannangara had spoken for hours before the passage of the Free Education Bill that free education should be established to build the country decades ago. Online education and modern education methods has become more and more important and the Sakwala project initiative was introduced in order to fill the void at his best. The Sakwala initiative would be the new freedom struggle in modern education,” said Premadasa.

Under the Sakwala program, computer screens and brand-new computers for smart classrooms will be donated to schools, which will enable children of the nation to excel in modern education.
