Twenty-seven Private Artificial Insemination Technicians (PAITs) working in the Grama Niladari Divisions of Oddusuddan, Puthukudiryiruppu, Karathuraipatru, Manthai-East and Thunukkai in Mullaitivu District have passed the AI practical examination successfully. This examination makes these Technicians eligible to hold the Artificial Insemination License.
This achievement is indeed a milestone in the lives of these PAITs as they had worked diligently in their respective project regions for the past 2 years. The project was implemented through funding assistance from Palmera Projects and the Government of Australia. On receiving the AI license these Private Artificial Insemination Technicians become authorized individuals in conducting Artificial Insemination.
More than 60 AIs are conducted in each region per month, while the number increases when the weather is favorable. Evidently showcasing a growth in the progress of the project!
