[TamilNet, Friday, 27 January 2006, 12:07 GMT]
Project Co-ordinator at The Economic Consultancy House (TECH), Mr Pulendran, presided over the foundation stone laying ceremony for a new preschool for children of the war-affected community in Jeevanagar, Muttaiyankattu in Mullaitivu district Wednesday at 10 a.m., sources in Kilinochichi said. TECH is a Sri Lanka Government registered NGO working exclusively in the NorthEast on employment generation projects.
The new building will replace the preschool for nearly 40 children that is functioning out of a temporary shelter. The permanent building will be a good first step to provide progressive educational opportunities to the impoverished community, TECH officials said.
The financial assistance for the center is being provided by an Internet group of Tamil-Norwegians and the school will function under the administration of TECH.
Head of the Political Section in Mullaitiuv, Thamilarasan, laid the foundation stone. Village Development Council President, Mr Rasalingam, Preschool teacher, Ms Kalaichelvi and several Jeevanagar residents attended the foundation laying ceremony.
