Sihinayata Piyapath

We never want to see their dreams fall off. All what we desire is to give wings to those innocent dreams, from the name of education and show them how to fly for the reality. That’s why we started the project series ‘Sihinayata Piyapath’ to assist the school children throughout Sri Lanka, whom needs a helping hand to protect their own dreams.








This project series consists with a motivational program, tree planting program and some more activities to inspire the students, along with a seminar series on mathematics, especially targeting the students who are sitting for the G.C.E. O/L Examination this year. 


So far, within the months of July and August, we conducted five phases of this project series, Sihinayata Piyapath’ consecutively in

  • Perealiya Sri Jinarathana Maha Vidyalaya (July 12),
  • Atugoda Sri Sumangala Maha Vidyalaya, Kegalle (July 14),
  • Veleewa Buddhist College (July 28),
  • Embilipitiya Buluthota Vidyalaya (July 29, 30) and
  • Meepawala Amarasooriya Vidyalaya, Galle (August 8).



Each of these phases concluded successfully and we could only measure that success through the comments we got from the students at the end of each program. 

We hope that we were a helping hand to them, to discover their own dreams. All what we want to see is, they building their own dreams, before someone else would hire them to build theirs.


15th Installation Ceremony

Nothing is impossible to a willing heart. When many such hearts pulse together that strength becomes invincible and passion becomes the motive force to swift through any barricade coming forth. Memories of our brilliant last year, from which we siege to the new, are the masterpieces which reflect the true essence of that strength which enabled us to illuminate a thousand hearts as UOM Leos. 

We marked our very first prints of ascendance in the brand new Leoistic year on the 13th of August 2017 by the Installation of the new officers who indeed will be the pillars of this colossal task.Chief Guest for the 15th Installation Ceremony was the President of the Leo District 306A2 Leo Lion Kalindu Dissanayake and the head table was graced with distinguished guests of Leo District 306A2.




By being appointed as the President for the Leoistic year 2017/2018 Leo Buddhi Isurujith officially assumed duties to back the upcoming year and Leo Devini Shashiprabha became the Secretary.   Leo Hasitha Jayanath  became the treasurer. Everybody witnessed a glamorous and prestigious installation which remarked an imperial legend of eminence and hopefully this ceremony would be another benchmark of the non-ending journey of UOM Leos.

Diriliya Jayamaga - Sarukala divimaga




''She is the strength of the family, spirit of the country, real architect of the society.Lighting up her life will lead to brightening future of the world.''


As a mother, as a sister, as a wife and as a responsible citizen, woman plays a major role in the society. If she is strong enough in her abilities and skills to fulfill the responsibilities properly, this society will become a much better place than today. Therefore we thought that improving the abilities of the woman is the best way to empower them. 




With this leading objective, “Diriliya jayamaga - sarukala divimaga project was organized as a bag sewing workshop. Through this project we expected to give them a hand to start a new self-employment and introduce a solution to reduce the excessive use of polythene bags which has become an environmental hazard in these days.
                                                                                       


This project was conducted on 23rd July 2017 at “Wasana” Sanasa society hall, Hapugala east with the participation of UOM Leos, prospects and about twenty women from that area. Mrs. Roshini Samarasinghe joined with us as the resource person. Finally, We were able to conclude our project Diriliya jayamaga- Sarukala divimaga as another remarkable step taken by Leo club of University of Moratuwa to empower the women while giving a better solution to huge environmental issue.  




Aashinsana


It’s the dream of each parent to spend their old days with their kids and grandchildren, once they got retired from their busy lives. But, today that wish has become just a dream to most of them though they had spent more than a half of their lives on their children.




At the beginning of the new chapter in our club, we wanted to get the blessings from the best, the oldest and the wisest that had experienced the world most. That’s why we, the UoM Leos stepped into the Thihagoda Elder’s Home, Matara on the days of 7th and 8th of July together with the Leo club of Rahula College, Matara.
                                                                                                                                       



There we spent both days under their companion as by helping them to clean the elders home and from every other possible way we could. The second day was well spent with the Sil campaign, done together with those parents under our assistance.

Both days came out as a fruitful event where we were able to bring a little smile to their faces and be a little relief those hearts that hurt a lot.
