2022-02-17 20:12:49

A memorandum of understanding to commence a batik training programme for family members of fallen War Heroes, wounded ones, civil staffers and others interested in the industry was made on Tuesday (15) after a proposal to this effect was initiated by Mrs Sujeewa Nelson, President, Army Seva Vanitha Unit (ASVU) in collaboration with the reputed Buddhi Batiks Pvt Ltd.

The signatories to the MOU, Mrs Darshi Keerthisena, Chief Executive Officer of the Buddhi Batiks and Mrs Sujeewa Nelson, President, Army Seva Vanitha Unit (ASVU) expect to support improve living standards of Army families and War Heroes through this project as it is a domestic industry which can earn foreign exchange too.

The agreement plus documents related to the implementation of the programme were handed over to Mrs Darshi Keerthisena, Chief Executive Officer of the Buddhi Batiks to Mrs Sujeewa Nelson at the ASVU office in the Army Headquarters. Subsequently, Mrs Sujeewa Nelson and Mrs Darshi Keerthisena visited the location where the training programme for Batik industry has been planned in Manning town married quarters complex.

Around the same time, a social service activist, Mrs Kelum Anandagoda volunteered to offer a scholarship to a deserving student in Army families.

Several Senior Officers also joined the visit, including Brigadier Thushara Balasooriya, Brigadier Coordinator at the Army Seva Vanitha Unit.
