It was very satisfying to see the participants walking out of the venue with lot of determination to achieve in life.

It also opened their eyes to set a vision for their families and to head towards achieving that.
Maliban Textile, one of the apparel manufacturers in Sri Lanka, partnered with Ultimma to train its female factory staff to motivate and guide them on grooming aspects. The event was well received by the participants as many of them are from rural areas and had no clue as to how to present themselves for work and had many challenges in life. It is always a satisfaction to upgrade the lives of under privileged.
