The Traditional Industries and Small Enterprise Development Ministry of Sri Lanka, has undertaken to impart training to about 650 youths, through a specially designed training program, Guru Shilpa. Such training will be imparted at various conventional training centres across the country.

Through the conventional training program, unemployed youth in increasing numbers could be trained to engage them as labour force. Master craftsmen would impart training of these conventional crafts to these youngsters, which would certainly present them with more rewarding self-employment opportunities, in times to come.

Moreover, this would also facilitate conservation of the conventional handicraft, which is now conserved by the craftsmen, and would also motivate the youngsters to adopt this lucrative form of art as means of self-employment.

Since Sri Lanka already has peace and with it is growing the country's tourism business, the handicraft sector got an assurance of higher sales, is they offered their visitors, quality handicrafts.

Around 22 specified fields of these conventional handicrafts will be covered under the training scheme, and training would be imparted to learners at 42 different locations.
