A daughter of one of the minor staff at Ladies’ College studied English on a scholarship at the IPS. She then enrolled for a Secretarial Diploma Course, and, because of her proficiency in English and training in secretarial skills, was employed as a junior secretary in the corporate sector.
Niluka Damayanthi from Monaragala and Sanduni from Matara were recommended to the IPS by the Shilpa Girls Home and were granted scholarships to study English at the IPS. The friendly and qualified staff of the IPS helped, encouraged and coached them, and their English improved dramatically.
Niluka is now employed at the IPS and is adding value to the institute.
Sanduni after having successfully completed the course at IPS, is now employed at a leading Bank in the country.
Niluka and Sanduni’s story are only a few among many. The IPS is an institute dedicated to empowering such students by giving them opportunities that they otherwise would not have dreamed of. Many students like these have benefited by the scholarships granted by the IPS to further their studies enabling them to secure suitable employment and thus giving them the opportunity to look forward to a bright future.
