The Ranaviru Sewa Authority under the directive of the State Minister of Defence and the collaborative effort of the Chief Minister of Eastern Province recently launched an empowerment and grant programme for the Ranaviru community. Ranaviru communities from Batticaloa and Ampara Districts received grants at a ceremony held at the Provincial Secretariat Office in Batticaloa last month.

425 Ranaviru children, 75 war orphans and displaced children received school bags, school supplies and scholarships. Etisalat Lanka supported the programme with generous contributions, in line with their brand vision of enriching the lives of Sri Lankan people beyond connectivity.

While other State and private associations equally contributed towards the programme, interfaith clergy, officials from State departments, Tri Forces and the Police assisted to organize and execute the project.

The programme envisions peaceful co-existence and reconciliation among war affected communities by empowering youngsters for a better future.

Pictured are moments from the event where children were awarded scholarships and school supplies by distinguished guests in attendance.
