June 02, Colombo (LNW): Another phase of the program for the distribution of incubators aimed at strengthening the rural economy and uplifting the small-scale poultry farm owners was held this week at Seethawaka Pradeshiya Sabha under the patronage of Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena.

Through an incubator, which is provided under the assistance of the Chinese Government, direct income sources will be opened for five families and many families in the villages related to those families will get its indirect benefits.

 The objective of this program is to improve income generation, improve nutrition intake of families, improve general egg production in the country, and create a self-sufficient home garden at the household level. 5,000 people will benefit from this program which was started at Seethawaka.

The Chinese People’s Government has granted these machines, not only to the low-income people of our country, but also to benefit the women, along with the country’s gardening, give it from village to village, popularise it in the area, and to give nutritious food to a child.

 All those who have come forward giving this special opportunity to Seethawaka and Padukka areas, should work together to make this program a success. Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena expressed hope to popularise this as an additional project related to the self-employment project..

Hanwella is the centre where this industry was started. When. Philip Gunawardena, as the Minister of Agriculture and Food, began this business in Sri Lanka at that time, such large machines had not been produced in the world.

The first machine was installed in our province in 1957 at the Hanwella Gamsabha office at this junction.

The President has now announced a new opportunity to support females as up to five thousand new businessmen in a Divisional Secretariat Division.

This opportunity is available to women entrepreneurs who have come forward to start new businesses, be it trade or manufacturing, no matter how many old debts they have.

 The Pradeshiya Sabha also has the opportunity for providing various training. As a government, we are obliged to provide training to young people leaving school and to all those looking for a new job. The future of the young generation lies in professional qualifications.”
