As part of the recent Peace Camp in Wariyapola, we asked the kids to group into their home districts and work on a mural along the themes of how they see Sri Lanka at present and their hopes for Sri Lanka’s future. Here are some of the results,
These guys and girls seem to wish for a more equitable and a cohesive Sri Lanka in the future.
The guys from Trinco seem to be wishing for religious harmony leading to progress which is impeded by a war waged in the name of peace.
Gampaha and Hambantota districts
These guys seem to be more concerned with the escalating “Cost of Living”, it’s anyone’s guess as to what the spider web means.
Monralagala, Anuradhapura and Kurunegala districts
These young people seem to want peace and denounce violence.
