The Gammedda 100-Day Initiative, which focuses on finding solutions to public issues that need immediate attention, continues its groundbreaking work on a number of locations around the country.

We’ve all heard the time old saying Reading maketh a full man. However for some, this is easier said that done.

For years the students in Thabalagamuwa in Kantale, were unable to expand their horizons through reading due to the lack of proper facilities

The dreams of these people, who were once battered by the war, became a reality with the News1st Gammedda 100-Day Initiative, taking steps to renovate the public library in Thabhalagamuwa, which was in a state of dilapidation

Renovation work on the library commenced on Saturday morning with the participation of a distinguished gathering including group director of the Capital Maharaja Organisation, Nedra Weerasinghe.

Apart from renovating the library, Gammedda 100-Day Initiative also took measures to supply the necessary equipment and books for the library. Over 500 people receive direct benefits from the Thabhalagamuwa Public Library.

A foundation stone was laid today for a multi-purpose building in Watamada in Hambegamuwa, under the Gammedda 100 day initiative. This is the fifth project carried out by the Gammedda 100-Day initiative in the Thanamanwila Divisional Secretariat area.

The formation of Gammedda Savia organisation, aimed at ensuring that these projects receive the proper maintenance upon completion, also took place at this occasion.

The poem recited by a child at the function organised in Watameda, brought tears to the eyes of many.
