Apiit sponsors 20th Interact District Conference

Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT) was the Official Higher Education Partner of the 20th Interact District Conference held at the St. Joseph's College auditorium recently.

APIIT officials present the sponsorship package to Int. Naveka Karunaratne - District Conference Chairperson.

The Interact District Conference is an important annual event organized by Interact clubs of the Interact District 3220 Asia Zone VIA Sri Lanka comprising a membership of over 100 school based clubs in Sri Lanka with an active membership of 5000 young individuals. The Interact club is a Rotary sponsored non-profit oriented service based movement that brings the youth of a nation together in the age group of 12-20 years.

The activities of the Interact Club provides opportunities for youth to be constructively occupied and mature into responsible adults with the ability to accept the varied challenges they will encounter in their endeavours in the future. Interact also promotes leadership skills and opportunities to meet new friends.
The 20th Interact District Conference has the participation of over 1000 Interactors from Colombo, Kandy, Galle, Matale, Jaffna and other newly formed clubs. This Interact year has witnessed an expansion of Interact Clubs within all ethnicities of our country, and the theme of the event was "Transcending Barriers, Bridging Cultures": Going beyond boundaries in order to create an atmosphere of understanding and unification in all cultural aspects.
