The De La Salle Brothers run Diyagala Boystown, a four-year residential vocations training program for disadvantaged youth. Most of the boys who attend are school drop outs, street kids or who have been brought to BoysTown by the courts or parish priests. The starting age of students varies from 14 to 18 years. DBT is situated on 70 acres of agricultural land on the outskirts of Colombo. All graduates receive a Government-accreditation certificate upon passing their final exams. The program runs for four years, introducing the students to the variety of trades training available, i.e. lathe/metalwork, automotive mechanics, carpentry, electrical, bakery. All students participate in work experience, with many securing a full-time job before the completion of their work experience program. DBT has an 100% graduate employment rate. This gift allows one boy to attend a full day's training at DBT.
This gift supports communities in Sri Lanka and costs 3019 points on JellyChip.
