Colombo (News1st): The fourth stage of the Gammadda V-Force got underway in Kegalle this morning (January 19). Members of the V-Force team visited the Dedigama Kinivita Primary school in Kegalle.
Located 15 kilometres away from the Warakapola town, the students of the Dedigama Kinivita Primary school engage in their educational activities, in dilapidated buildings.
Under the V-Force initiative today, these buildings were renovated and painted, fulfilling a long-awaited wish of the students and teachers. The event was joined by several officials including the Chief Executive Officer of the Capital Maharaja Organization Limited Mohan Barara, Group Director Chevaan Daniel, and the General Manager of News1st Yasarath Kamalsiri.
Speaking at the initiative CEO of TCMOL Mohan Barara noted that it is great to see hundreds of young people coming together to help. He added that V-force now has almost 10000 volunteers and that requires each one to only connect with only 2200 people to transform our nation.
The CEO noted that doing something different from their daily work will definitely help the youngsters who were present today to get a wider perspective to life while it will also help them for future leadership.
Kansai Paints Lanka Pvt Ltd and A-PAD also known as the Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management also extended their support. The project was joined by various professionals, members of Gammadda and News1st, students of the Peradeniya and Moratuwa universities, and diploma level students of the Maharaja Institute of Management (MIM).
