A donor has expressed interest to construct an Olympic standard Aquatic Sports Complex and requested the Policy Development Office of the Prime Minister’s Office to find the suitable location in Jaffna.
The Government Agent, Jaffna has recommended certain lands for this purpose. After inspection, the Sellamuththu Playground which is on land belonging to the Pradesha Sabha in Manipay has been selected.
After the negotiations with the Manipay Pradesha Sabha, it was proposed by the donor that the Aquatic Complex should be managed by the Foundation of Goodness, a non-profit NGO which is managing a donor supported Aquatic Complex in Seenigama.
A delegation of 33 members including the Pradesha Sabha Chairman will be visiting the Seenigama Aquatic Complex on 16th March 2019 to experience and understand the concept and successful factors to make this dream a reality.
