Colombo (News 1st) – In a groundbreaking partnership announced recently, The Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas in the US will partner The Gammadda Movement, Sri Lanka’s largest non-government humanitarian initiative.

The Clinton School is the first university in the US to offer graduate programs in Public Service and was founded to commemorate President Bill Clinton, who began his public service in Little Rock, Arkansas.

” We are excited to have Gammadda as a new partner organization in 2020. We hope this Sri Lankan initiative is the catalyst for additional collaborative opportunities linking Gammadda and the Clinton School “, noted James L. “Skip” Rutherford III, the Dean of The Clinton School.

The International Public Service Project initiative between Gammadda & The Clinton School will focus on a seemingly insurmountable problem faced by Sri Lanka’s rural villages; the Human-Elephant Conflict, which claims the lives of hundreds of humans and elephants, each year.

” Project-based learning is how the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service differs from more traditional graduate programs”, added Dean Rutherford.

The Gammadda Movement has been recognized by some of the world’s most prestigious seats of learning including Oxford University in the UK and Brown University in the US.
