At the commencement, Mr.Mathavarajah lit the traditional oil lamp. Thereafter the LTTE’s Tampalakamam political head, Mr.S.Thirumalai, declared open the training centre by cutting the ribbon.

The LTTE’s Trincomalee district political head, Mr.S.Thilak, later handed over the scissor and cloth to the teacher in charge of the sewing training centre to commence work.

The TRO’s Tampalakamam head, Mr.S.Nallasviam, presided over a meeting that followed the opening of the centre.

”Several non-governmental organizations are implementing development projects in the Trincomalee district according to their needs. The TRO has selected projects to cater to the needs of the society. Hence the TRO now has opened a sewing training centre in Thampalakamam village to enable unemployed girls to train themselves in a vocation that could provide income for their livelihood,” said Mr.Mathavarajah.
