OUR PROGRAMME
Every country in the modem world has recognized the need of counselling Centres. The reason is the arising of a series of Physical and mental problems that enveloped everybody from the infant to the old one on the verge of death. Guidance and counselling is a process aiming at a developmental target. The main aim is to let the individual understand and solve his own Problem by way of mediation and co-operation rather than advising. 
The rural community in Sri Lanka specially the younger generation has beencarried away by various social forces. Some of them have failed to fulfil their aspirations in life. Hence this is a period in which various social agencies are desperately needed to build up the declining social relations or interpersonal relations . In the community, there must be a new awakening which everybody must make a contribution by making use of his knowledge. Simple programmes should be launched to get rid of various social evils as small groups, families and individuals. Today we need the counselling centres, having a friendly atmosphere. Where anyone close to the public can meet another person at any moment. 
Today we need the gathering of people having knowledge at various levels and the sharing of knowledge. We also need to go to the people concerned and explore their own problems and organize active programs at various levels. At the sametime we need counsellors who are capable of providing guidance to the children.
