Ex-combatants to push development
Five hundred and four male and female ex-combatants who passed the
National Certificate at NVQ level two in masonry were awarded
certificates and machinery kits by the National Apprentice and
Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) recently.
Thousands of ex-combatants surrendered to the security forces were
rehabilitated and given the opportunity to complete their primary,
secondary education and vocational training by the Government.
The training program was initiated under the MoU signed by the NAITA
which comes under the purview of the Youth Affairs and Skills
Development Ministry with the Holcim Lanka (Pvt) Ltd.
