President Tharunyayata Hetak Namal Rajapaksa told a press briefing recently that they have already identified 25 schools and the proposed facilities will be provided without any discrimination.

"The purpose of selecting Trincomalee district was to treat all students alike irrespective of religion, ethnic and the class difference", he said. Rajapaksa said the programme will be extended to Batticaloa, and Jaffna before the end of this year. A poster campaign will be organised to raise funds for the programme.

He said the 'Tharunyayata Hetak' has been built on ideals of racial and religious amity. Within its brief tenure of it has launched several projects to save youth from drug menace.
