A YOUTH MOVEMENT FOR HOPE AND RECONCILIATION

DEDICATED TO BUILDING OUR NATION IN PURSUIT OF AUTHENTIC RECONCILIATION

 

 

'YOUTH LEADERSHIP FOR A UNITED COUNTRY'

 

 

As the next generation moves into leadership, we, the youth of Sri Lanka hold the future of our country in our hands. In this critical period of transition for the country, we have the opportunity to replace a culture of divisiveness and conflict and be a voice for change; for hope and reconciliation. The Sri Lanka Unites movement represents this choice of our nation’s youth, from ethnic and religious groups, from across the country, to rise up and provide a new voice.
