Sri Lanka is colonized by 3 European nations, Portuguese, Dutch and British. We got independence in 1948 but they left lots of social unrests on us. Our tradition was totally collapsed and destroyed. Strange and non compatible development plans are introduced including agricultural and educational systems. When they introduced new plans, they called it as development, but now we are suffering from the effects of that alien development plans. We need to follow environmental friendly and sustainable development activities while developing human factor. They need to think, work and experienced an innovative activities that need to change their lives into positive and productive way. All of them should know their role on country’s development process. We are trying to do this with volunteers without destroying our tradition, culture and environment. As a human being, we are dreaming about peaceful, productive & green society towards a colorful tomorrow for our younger generation.
