"Hello Everyone, Its been a long time and I was just thinking about how the country is changing and recently after the presidential elections there has been a promotion of racism against the Tamils and Muslims.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate and value this program, which unites our country and its people by exposing all the cultures in Sri Lanka to its youth, and showing them that we are ALL Sri Lankans, no matter where we come from. 

The brotherhood & Sisterhood created in these camps are truly remarkable and I believe this camp is a key factor in the development of Sri Lanka's youth, as it teaches us that being different is not a bad thing and that we are all people living in the same country. 

This camp blurs the lines of differences and shows us our similarity instead. Reminding us that we are all boys and girls of the same country, we like the same things and have the same interests we just do things a little differently. Hopefully our youth with carry that with them and educate others to be open minded as well.

I am really happy that I was a part of your organization and hope that your camps continue to spread the unity that our nation needs as it is a crucial time where your camps and organization is needed"
