Colombo (LNW): DP Education opened a “DP Education IT Campus” centre at Ethawetunuwewa College in Welioya on July 30, 2023, under the patronage of Dhammika Perera, co-founder of DP Education.
DP Education IT Campus is an initiative operated by DP Education aiming the increasing of computer literacy of the children of Sri Lanka and paving the way for them to find career opportunities in the IT Sector.
“This area has no internet, no signal properly. But we brought in internet here with new technology. So, there won’t be any problem for the children to continue their learning activities. By establishing this in an area where there is no internet or signal, we hope that at least 200 children will be able to come out as software engineers per year,” Dhammika Perera told media.
The “DP Education IT Campus” aims to provide coding, AI (artificial intelligence) and robotics education which can lead to a large number of career opportunities in the global IT Sector. DP Education has already set up plans to establish a DP Education IT Campus in every regional secretariat in Sri Lanka.
