Courage, Confidence and Values For Children to Face Current Challenges in Sri Lanka

Thursday, 16th of May 2019

  • How do we equip our innocent children who have not experienced the fear of brutal war that darkened our country for three decades, to face the current crisis that has cast gloom over our beautiful country?
  • How to we inculcate in them good values of equality of all people of Sri Lanka and motivate them to be ambassadors of peace and unity, who will take forward our country to a bright future some day?
  • How do we teach children to think critically for themselves without being influenced by false rumours and hate speech that only lead to fear and destruction?
  • How do we train our children to be courageous, speak out and be leaders for positive change?
  • How do we train them to be alert about safety and security without unnecessary fear? Children need guidance and motivation to go in the right direction. They need encouragement, to bring out the best of their unique talents.
