‘Nipunatha Saviya’ (Skills Development Programme for children)

Children at their early age with fresh minds are eager to learn new things and exposing them to right experiences will lay the foundation for them to become self-reliant, responsible adults in the future. A skills development programme rightly named ‘Nipuna Saviya’ , meant to motivate teenagers of both sexes(in grades 8 and 9 in schools) to handle minor repairs around the household is conducted at YMBA, Maharagama. This program led by experienced tutors put them through a basic theoretical knowledge and hands on experience in use of tools and simple equipment, electrical wiring, plumbing and simple masonry work emphasizing on safety at work. They are prompted to think creatively to find solutions to common problems they encounter in their day to day work, to design new devices and work of art.
