NDB Bank (NDB) recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Diesel & Motor Engineering PLC (DIMO), to provide training to youth in North and East, in the rapidly growing automotive industry.
As part of the NDB Jeevana livelihood development scheme, 30 youth each, from Ampara and Jaffna will be selected to undergo six months comprehensive training, primarily on Tata commercial vehicles and Mahindra tractors.
NDB CEO Mr. Russell De Mel said, “Having successfully enrolled 30 students in Trincomalee to undergo training in the Hospitality sector as the initial step of this scheme, we then pursued the idea of partnering with a leader in the automotive industry, namely DIMO, to offer an opportunity for the youth in Ampara and Jaffna to be exposed to training in this industry. As we launched this initiative with the objective of providing financial backing and expert training on sectors that contribute to the development of our nation, we feel that the automotive field is a career choice that would enhance the lives of the youth in these areas.”
DIMO Chairman & CEO Ranjith Pandithage said, “Ever since DIMO’s inception, we have made it a priority to educate and train our people with the necessary skills in the automobile industry that would boost their career paths. Along with NDB, we are confident that we will be able to further extend our vocational training services to Ampara and Jaffna that will lead to prosperity of the two districts.
