All Sri Lankan youth possess the potential to be adept in computer technology and computer literacy. With farsightedness we train young men and women to discover their computer potential, making it possible for them to become complete citizens of Sri Lanka and the world.


Our pragmatic commitment is to enable Sri Lankan youth to take the lead in national development, utilising the most advanced computer technologies and systems. State-of-the-art equipment and lecturers and instructors who are efficient, will guide the trainees. Devoting full attention to their individual needs.

Towards a Bright Future for Sri Lanka Youth

Gangaramaya Monastery, under the guidance and supervision of Ven. Galboda Gnanissara Nayaka Maha Thero, has always been a pioneering institution in the field of education. Recognising the high significance of English Education to enable our youth to realise their potential, Ven Galboda Gnanissara Nayaka Maha Thero, introduced the Language Lab System, long before any educational institute or educationist could think about it. With the same farsightedness Gangarama Monastery has taken steps to provide an advanced computer training facility established at Sri Jinaratana Vocational Technical Training Centre, affiliated to Gangarama Monastery ushering in the youth of our land to the 21st century, enabling them to achieve personality fulfilment unscathed.
