YEARLY CHILDREN’S GET TOGETHER AND SPIRITUAL AND FRIENDSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME– 2011

The yearly gathering of CRC has been conducted in the historical surroundings of Kataragama this year too in a highly dignified manner. The objectives of this annual event are ensuring progress of the children of CRC by spiritual development, strengthening interactions and developing relationships among them year by year.

The programme was conducted under the patronage of the founder of the Youth Progressive Foundation and island wide CRC centres Mr. Ashan Malalasekera. The special feature of the programme this year was gathering of children along with their parents from several CRC centres established in different parts of the country.

Around 450 children and their parents got together at the Kataragama CRC centre representing Eravur CRC - Batticaloa, Arugam Bay CRC and Hambanthota CRC. The newly renovated Kataragama CRC hosted the gathering. An interactive get together of children and their parents belonging to different cultural, religious and communal backgrounds made this year’s event more colourful and joyful.

The programme was conducted for 03 days on the 18th, 19th and the 20th of December 2010. The principals and the teachers of the CRC centres, officials of the Youth Progressive Foundation and members of YPF Voluntary Group also joined this festive occasion.
