“SLA‘s scholarship programme will  target young  people with leadership skills, engaged in community service. SLA plans to award 100 scholarships in the next 5 years but we shall be selective in granting these awards because we want to encourage young people who are rooted in our tradition and culture and also fully engaged in community service” Sabally asserted.
