Alliance Institute Badulla introduced a computer course in 2012 for underprivileged people in Badulla. Nearly 80 students currently benefit from studying information technology at the Alliance institute. As it is vital for students and those involved in business to keep up with new developments and technological advances, NCEASL introduced a Microsoft Windows and Office Course to those enrolled with the Alliance Institute of whom the majority are students.
On 16th July, 15 students who had completed the course received a certificate of completion at a simple ceremony held at the Light House Church Badulla. “We thank NCEASL for enabling us study IT free of charge. With our financial background we could never dream of having a computer education. But this dream became a reality because of your generosity” said a student who delivered the vote of thanks on behalf of all the students who graduated. A multi ethnic student population from Badulla benefitted from the computer course which catered to students from Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Hindu backgrounds.
