A national programme has been launched according to a concept of Sanasa Movement’s founder Dr. P.A. Kiriwandeniya to develop 5,000 villages. The district level opening ceremony of this programme titled ‘Let’s cut expenses and increase income’ (Weya Adu Karamu – Aya Wedi Karamu) was held at the auditorium of Ibbagamuwa Maha Vidyalaya in Kurunegala while Sanasa members from 16 other districts joined the programme online.
Over 700 members of Sanasa attended the event representing over 100 Sanasa societies in Kurunegala District. The need of a broader development programme from grass roots level to national level which has the support of all Sanasa societies was discussed primarily, while Sanasa Life Insurance, Sanasa General Insurance Company, Sanasa Campus, SANASA International Pvt Ltd and Sanasa General Assembly play a key role in implementing this project, a spokesman said.
“If we are to overcome the current crisis situation, we shouldn’t wait for relief from the Government. Everyone from grass roots level to national level should come together for this. We are implementing the ‘Let’s cut expenses and increase income’ programme to popularise this ideology. There’s much we can do together and personally.
The concept of Sanasa that is being implemented across the world successfully is taking decisions together,” Dr. P. A. Kiriwandeniya said.
