About the IT Center

After 10 years work at Mawala IT centre in which 2500 students had been trained, Projects Abroad started its second phase in Panadura in January 2014. The IT centre is located around 50 metres from the Colombo-Galle main road in Panadura town. The Bolgoda River flows nearby. At the IT centre, volunteers can teach basic computing to the children who come from the villages around Panadura.
