Emerging out of decades of great adversity, and a culture of suspicion and divisiveness, the end of the war finally marks a window of opportunity for us to rebuild as one nation. Yet, we are still faced with a common threat - an inability to find a sustainable peace. We are standing on the cusp of a new era, where an all too familiar polarised society could be replaced with one that is determined to correct the wrongs of the previous generation; a society that comes together in the spirit of reconciliation.
As such, the defining question of today is, “how will the youth engage in reshaping the next decades and give leadership to positive changes that must take place?”
Sri Lanka Unites aims to do just that.
Our vision is, "to unite the youth of all ethnic and religious groups across Sri Lanka in a movement that promotes reconciliation, creating a peaceful and prosperous nation for future generations”. Our mission “To be a symbol for, and an example of, the powerful potential of united Sri Lankans to work towards sustainable development, peace and prosperity”.
As young citizens of Sri Lanka, we now have a unique opportunity, and a strong responsibility, to turn a new page and write a new story. We must firmly resolve to promoting reconciliation among our fellow Sri Lankans.
