The top priority is creating and supporting new entrepreneurs
The development of the business sector, particularly nurturing the entrepreneurial mindset among youth is the best way of uplifting the country. I used to be a small entrepreneur during my university time (Undergraduate) and realized how it had developed my confidence and gave me enough training to standing alone as a person in society. [The cruel face of the civil war had destroyed many of our dreams, and had been putting barriers for every movement in the business.] Past is past.
Now the country is not ready for civil war but fighting a war against hunger.[2020-2022..]
There are numerous business opportunities to take within the country and take beyond the borders. The problem is the mindset of our youth. Blame on our education system. Which has been creating paper-based graduates over decades. Youth seem to have lost their inner – curiosity, hunger for invention, thirsty for knowledge.. all, because of a government job-guaranteed education system. Just become a graduate of any subject, government guarantees a job within a few years from graduation. Most of the crowd dwells in the dream of a government job and doing nothing until then.
Another major portion of the youth population is running behind fake agencies, low quality private educational qualifications to move to a foreign country expecting a huge wealth generation. A small population goes for some middle east countries to make an earning almost they can make within Sri Lanka.
Creating entrepreneurs, educating them, supporting them is a part of the life mission.
Through our institution (KU Education) we have been offering many free educational programs to induce the hidden talents of youth and help them to identify their capabilities which can be monetized later in their life.
