[TamilNet, Monday, 03 November 2003, 01:48 GMT]
A leading garage owner in the Trincomalee town, Mr.V.Karunanthasivam, was honoured with the Vocational Excellence award for the year by the Trincomalee Rotary Club at an event held at Rotary House Saturday evening. Sri Lanka's Rotary Governor, Mr. Gamini Jayawardene, presented the award during his official visit to Trincomalee.

Mr. Jayawardene handed over sewing machines to women under self-employment projects now being implemented in the Rotary village, Varothia Nagar, where internally displaced are resettled, sources said.

Mr.Karunanthasivam has been running the garage "Sivam Motors" in Trincomalee town since 1968. The special committee appointed by the Trincomalee Rotary Club selected him for the Vocational Excellence award.

Speaking at the occasion, Mr.Jayawardene commended the Trincomalee Rotary Club as a well motivated one. He was impressed with the activities of the club that has dedicated itself for the well-being of the suffering people.

He said he visited Varothia Nagar in the morning and opened a housing scheme for the internally displaced families who have returned to their lands after several years.

Mr.Jayawaradene assured that he would provide assistance for the construction of another sixty houses for the returnees.

He added that his club is to launch three projects for inmates of prisons. Courses in computer training and motor mechanism would be organized for prison inmates ensuring a bright future for them in their life. He said forty seven percent of the prisoners released from jails return to prisons because they have no permanent jobs to earn for their livelihood. Hence he has taken steps to provide vocational training to prisoners while serving sentences through matching grants of the Rotary movement

Trincomalee Rotary Club President Mr. R.Rajarammohan made the welcome address.
