About Us

While the world is taking part in IT revolution, Jaffna, due to war circumstances, couldn’t contribute what it could to this specific field. Although migrated citizens of North have contributed to IT from elsewhere, the region doesn’t have its own identity in the global IT market.

YIT is a society who lives to with a dream of making Jaffna the next Sillicon Valley.

It is now time for the Jaffna folks to connect and experience the world’s change and to get involved with that change and contribute. It is a chance for them to use whatever they have read and seen about technology in the outer world.

There is always a fresh passion and a desire for learning found in Jaffna and we believe that these are the elements that are needed to make Jaffna a powerhouse for IT. In addition, there are people abroad with the roots from Jaffna already connected with the change, and they have enough of experience and knowledge which they could share with Jaffna. We believe that everyone scattered around globally will hold hands with us, as most of them have, to make this dream come true. It is our request to those experts out there to support us in this journey.
