Arrangements have been made to hold a special Youth Camp with the aim of grooming an active youth generation inculcated with knowledge, skills and attitudes. It is based on a concept of the President. State Minister Niroshan Perera said that it has been named as the Pulathisi Youth Camp Reawakening on behalf of the country. The State Minister said that youth are the future of the country. It is a matter of importance to raise them up in society. He said that the President had decided to educate the youth and use their intelligence and knowledge for the development of the country and permit them to proceed politically.
Arrangements have been finalized for the holding of this Youth Camp from the 10th to the 12th of this month. More than 3000 young men and women are scheduled to participate in this Camp. Its prime aim is to apprise the youth fraternity of the programmes mooted by the Government within the Polonnaruwa District. The National Policies and Economic Affairs, Vocational Training and Public Empowerment Ministries are collaborating in this exercise.
