The Organization for the Rehabilitation of the Handicapped (ORHAN) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) working in the district of Vavuniya for the betterment of people with disabilities. The VTN Project supports ORHAN to start courses in the field of ICT and Electronics. Considering the needs of blind people, the VTN Project initiated the development of a modified curriculum in these fields to match the competencies of visually handicapped people. The trainers at ORHAN were trained by the VTN Project on the use of pedagogical methods for better teaching practice. Classrooms were newly constructed and fitted with the latest equipment for Electronics while a fully furnished ICT lab was also created and equipped with 12 networked computers.
The trainees are able to obtain up to NVQ Level 4 at the ORHAN Training Centre and can seek further training up to NVQ Level 6 in their respective fields by joining the Sri Lanka German Training Institute (SLGTI) in Kilinochchi.
