Public Talk

"The Role of an NGO in Sri Lanka's Reconciliation"

 

Mr. Kushil Gunasekera, founder of the Foundation of Goodness will be speaking at the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA)  on the topic "The Role of an NGO in Sri Lanka's Reconciliation".

History bears witness to the fact that following decades of conflict, the dawn of an era of peace always comes with its complexities. One of the most pivotal is reconciliation between the communities and people affected.  While governments may be able to introduce policy and constitutional reform, it is arguably the grassroots community that plays the most vital role in this process. Hence the role of community actors and Non-Governmental Organisations in bringing people together, and rebuilding harmonious co-existence through a shared sense of community, is a vital element of peace building. What are the challenges of running an NGO in a post-conflict environment?  How can the international community and the Sri Lankan diaspora help?

At Dyason House, 124 Jolimont Road, East Melbourne

   ' DENMA GODAWENNA'  ජීවිතය වෙනස් කරන නාටයක්
The indiscernible facets of a timeless truth missed out on, during a life time spent as an introvert searching for… yearning for pleasures within the self 
Lost in the mire of non-identity in which the concept of ownership is but a blurry line
Grasp an absolute truth, deserving of the humanity bestowed upon us
Reach out to a realism that supersedes lifetimes via a dramatic expression which stimulates the intellect: 
Final Call… Boarding now… A game changer of a drama.
