  Pahansila meeting in Kandy
December 26, 2010


Ishika Lokuge and Chandana Karunatilake, committee members of Pahansila General Coordinating Committee, met with several Pahansila scholarship recipients, on December 26, 2010. This is the second meeting we conducted for 2010/2011 period out of three. All the scholarship recipients (and parents/guardians of them) in Central, North-Central, Nortwestern, Uva, and Sabaragamuwa provinces were invited for the meeting. The meeting was held at the Kandy Buddhist Association Hall from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Mr. H.L.N Perera, one of the Pahansila administrators coordinated the meeting with the help of Mr. V. Subramaniam and Mrs. Ruwangani Jayasundara.

Over 100 guests attended the meeting, including 45 scholarship recipients, their parents/guardians, local supervisors, and Pahansila volunteers. It was another very successful meeting. At the meeting we had the opportunity to meet recipients & their guardians in person, resolve any problems they might have encountered, and emphasize the importance of maintaining a good academic and extra-curricular progress to get Pahansila assistance. Parents of scholarship recipients and the students got the opportunity to address the meeting. Several University students who get Pahansila assistance spoke at younger students encouraging them to work hard. Pahansila General Coordinating Committee provided tea and snacks as breakfast and lunch for all the attendees. Furthermore, we gave out a small gift with educational supplies to all students and all scholarship recipients and families attended the meeting received reimbursements for bus fares.

Pahansila General Coordinating Committee wishes to thank our volunteers who did a splendid job in organizing the meeting. Also we wish to thank the Kandy Buddhist Association for providing the venue.
