May 16, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka plans to introduce a Buddhist leadership programme to students in secondary education institutions.

It will be a one year programme that will be held in conjunction with the leadership training programme for undergraduates.

The new Buddhist leadership training programme will commence from 17 September this year.

Members of the Asgiriya Chapter have been quoted in the local media as saying that President Mahinda Rajapaksa had agreed to a Buddhist leadership training programme to be conducted in all schools island wide.

The Buddha Sasana Ministry will implement the project to create a Buddhist renaissance among Buddhist school going youth.

Reportedly, 150 Buddhist students chosen from schools countrywide will be given leadership training initially with lectures and workshops, essay competitions and debates.
