To augment the younger generation's skills building with better educational opportunities, the Government of Pakistan through its High Commission, has donated 17 computers and relevant equipment to re-launch and up-grade the Pakistan Computer Centre at All Ceylon Young Mens' Muslim Association Conference (YMMA).

The launch took place at their headquarters in Maradana, Colombo, recently. The Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan Dr. Sarfraz Ahmed Khan Sipra, was the chief guest at an impressive re-launching ceremony. The Pakistan Computer Centre was established in 2006 with the support of the Government of Pakistan through its High Commission.

In his welcome remarks, the National President of the All Ceylon YMMA Conference M. Thaufiq Zubyr thanked the Government and people of Pakistan and the High Commission for re-launching and up-grading the Pakistan Computer Centre and said that these computers, which were a long felt need, would help to provide ICT training for youngsters. He further said that all communities would benefit from this facility without any discrimination. The Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan, Dr. Sarfraz Sipra, while addressing the occasion, appreciated the charitable services of the All Ceylon YMMA Conference by promoting activities in all fields while contributing to the building of a healthy, vigorous and intelligent youth in the country. He reiterated that Pakistan would continue to support Sri Lanka in enhancing the skills of its youth. Dr.

Sipra noted that the Pakistan Computer Centre management in partnership with the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) would bring the desired outcome from this centre. He praised the working model and contribution rendered by the NAITA towards enhancement of Sri Lankan youth's skills and providing them with the right jobs. All Ceylon YMMA Conference primarily is a youth and youth serving Community Based Organization (CBO), founded on 30 April 1950. The Conference is national in outlook with 102 branches spread over the length and breadth of Sri Lanka.

This project would add to the various socio-economic development projects by the Government and people of Pakistan for their Sri Lankan brethren in housing, health, education and livelihood sectors.
