Tamil youth in Norway and Denmark came along with their parents to participate in high education and careers fairs organised by members of the Tamil Youth Organisation - Bergen (TYO-Bergen) and Thisaigal (TYO-Denmark) in their respective countries last month.

Keen to help nurture academic and career excellence in Tamil children a few years below them, organisers said they hoped to show Tamil children and parents the wide array of opportunities available to school leavers including engineering, aviation, medicine, physiotherapy, multimedia design, social work, and political science to name but a few.

Inviting representatives of various careers to talk about their work, attendees were given advice and encouragement on how to excel in their chosen field, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

As with previous such events, including those organised last year by Thisaigal and TYO-UK, attendees and their parents left impressed by the experience, encouraging members of the respective organisations to continue in their work to promote educational excellence.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
