Kelani Nadee Yathra
This is the first Yathra we organized with the support for Journeys for Climate Justice, Australia. It was a 12 day long journey with 35 youth trained as Green Youth leaders. Media reported this journey as the “longest ever youth training program based on a river“.
his project focused on creating young green leaders to combat the effects of climate change and promote environmental awareness. This diverse group of thirty youth were chosen from a vast pool of applicants, from all parts of Sri Lanka, and from many religious backgrounds; Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and Christians. For 9 days, after the commencement of the programme, these youth cycled their way from Kilinochchi to Vavuniya (Vavuniya District), gathering a multitude of skills and knowledge throughout the journey.
This is the Yathra organized for North–South youth in Sri Lanka and first ever Yahra for reconciliation and Climate change adaptation. Funded by US Embassy in Sri Lanka.
