Sachini Tharuka – Grade 8 – Horizon Lanka Academy
Mr. J. W. Sugath Kithsiri, a former Divisional Secretary of Mahawilachchiya Divisional Secretariat Division paid a surprise visit to Horizon Lanka Foundation last evening, on the eve of the New Year. Mr. Kithsiri is a young and experienced government officer now serving as the Divisional Secretary of Nachchaduwa Divisional Secretariat Division since January 07, 2011. He served as the Assistant Divisional Secretary of Mahawilachchiya Divisional Secretariat Division at first and then was promoted to the post of the Divisional Secretary of Mahawilachchiya Divisional Secretariat Division.
Mr. Kithsiri performed a yeoman service to Mahawilachchiya during the height of the Tamil Tigers’ separatist war against the citizens and the government that crippled the village life for almost three decades till the war ended in 2009. He was a friendly official who worked closely with the villagers of all walks of life. He was considered as an honest and unbiased official who went beyond his boundaries to serve the village.
Mr. Kithsiri was very helpful to Horizon Lanka in his capacity as the Divisional Secretary of Mahawilachchiya as he understood the potential of the organization at a time we were not recognized by many. We thank Mr. Kithsiri for visiting us.
