Cooperative movement promoted under the upliftment of secondary schools project
Cooperative movement will be promoted under the programme that will be launched to uplift secondary schools while extending support to the primary schools.
Minister Bandula Gunawardane expressed these views when he inaugurated the Dehiwala Mt. Lavinia Multipurpose Cooperative Society building. The Minister said that more opportunity will be provided for the Cooperative movement through the programme of creating 1000 popular schools instead of 50 to 60.
He said that cooperative movement will be promoted in all those schools. It would train the future generation to deal with the cooperative movement and remove the burden on parents to a certain extent. The children will be able to buy goods at reasonable prices while they will be able to familiarize themselves with the cooperative movement.
