Beyond Borders Blog Back in Business

… with a Bang? No, that’s one too many B words.

Anyway, this is to announce that the official blog of Beyond Borders Sri Lanka, after a hiatus of around six months, is finally back online. And we hope to keep this thing rolling, with regular posts on what BB is up to and will be up to in the coming months.

Just to give you an idea of what’s been going on, BB was recently involved in a project called LEARN, a joint initiative with the Warehouse Project, to teach English to underprivileged children in and around Colombo. Books and other reading-material were collected from members and their acquaintances and distributed among these (very deserving) kids. Then, there were the Forum Theatre productions which, we’re sure, you’re already aware of, all of which went smoothly and far exceeded our expectations. Our latest venture into activism is an ongoing joint-campaign against the harassment of women, carried out together with ReachOut, a youth-led initiative that promotes women’s rights – among other things – among young people from all walks of life. More on that, later…

That’s all for now, folks. We’ll keep you guys posted on what’s more to come. Do keep reading.

Oh, and comment! Your feedback’s always appreciated. 🙂
