“Sakwala”, a Modern Computer Screen and Computer Donation Pilot Project to empower a generation of talented children with modern technology, was launched by Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa today (30).
As the Pilot Project of the Sakwala initiative, Digital Computer Screens and Equipment worth Rs. 876,150 were donated to the skillful classrooms of Thanamalwila Bodagama Maha Vidyalaya. The donations were handed over to School Principal W.P. Somaratne.
Reminding that 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, the Opposition Leader pointed out that even then there were certain parties who had opposed this great idea.
Premadasa added that “online education” and “computer technology” are becoming more and more important and that the Sakwala initiative was introduced in order to fill the void at his best. The Sakwala initiative would be the new freedom struggle in modern education, he noted.
