Girls Training Centre
We have established a partnership with the Vikasha Girls Training Centre’s school of sewing and needlecraft. Vikasha is an children’s home in Bandarawella which only looks after girls who for various reasons cannot attend mainstream school or have dropped out of education. Its sewing school provides specialist training for seamstresses. The girls then have the opportunity to obtain skilled employment which would otherwise not be available to them. This school has struggled to obtain enough supplies, particularly in the current economic climate in Sri Lanka with nationwide shortages of materials. Brighter Path is now providing materials for the running of the school.
