"The Inter University Students' Exchange" as a group project.
With a great vision, they have
visited Eastern University & Jaffna University to build up the harmony
among campus students.
Parallel to the event Waymba
University students launched several social responsibility projects. Under that
they conducted beach clearing program, Street clearing program, street dramas
to aware public about nutritionals with the help of other universities. Also
they have visited few Elderly Care Homes & gifted them while having
friendly chat ,shared experiences each other.
Students have chosen above

there is less interaction between other university students. Though it was a
mammoth task they managed to conduct programs successfully with the help of
other university friends.

that though they are living too far from the distance, the friendship that
built is never ending. They make mother

About 'Rana Viru Sevana' in Ragama, Sri Lanka (Brief
A dedicated facility to look after the rehabilitation of
soldiers. 3 wards with over 100 disabled soldiers who are looked after on a
daily basis. They enjoy meeting the public that like to have a chat with them
and also give a smile with an entertainment act. A small act from public can go
a long way to bring happiness to these brave souls who had given their all to
the well being of our country.
In addition to the item donations, it is possible to
allocate time to give them a few entertainment acts (few songs, dances, magic
acts etc...) to put a smile on their faces. Time will also be available in the
visit to personally talk to them and hear their stories from the war that we
have only heard or read in papers.
What is needed from public:
