According to the information obtained from the nine provinces, there are around 14000 children in institutions and of them, around 4000 are above the age of 16. Studies have revealed that majority of institutionalized children do not qualify for higher education and happen to stay in institutions due to inability to survive economically as they are not skilled/trained to do a job/occupation.

Thus, the department signed a MOU with the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) to provide a more systematic and a recognized vocational training to these children.
