Travel - an educational bonanza

We talk about world peace and the need for understanding among peoples of the world. Communication helps us to exchange ideas. But face to face contact is better.

World Travel Centre Colombo now provides a unique opportunity for young people to travel overseas in a programme prepared for students in an educational extravaganza, where children open their minds to greater visions extending their frontiers in Science, Technology or Nature, a mix of education and entertainment with the opportunity to enjoy while learning.
