Well Done Leos!!

LCI Leo Leadership Training Survey

The Youth Programs Department and the Leadership Division want to provide Leos with the building blocks to obtain the appropriate skills Leos need to insure their success in leadership roles and responsibilities.

Learning is a lifelong process and Lions Clubs International believes all leaders and future leaders can benefit from training. In support of this idea, we would like to provide Leos with a variety of tools and resources to assist current leaders and future leaders in developing
their leadership skills.

To help us identify leadership-training opportunities for Leos, we invite you and your Leo club members to take a short 4-question survey.

Please visit www.lionsclubs. org and click: Youth Programs/Leo Clubs. Once on the Leo Zone home page, you will see a link for the Leadership Training Survey.

To help us hear the voices of all Leo members, please provide members this information at your next club meeting, and encourage them to take the survey too!

Please complete the survey by January 31, 2009.

Helping Hands for Education

Piyumal Gunawardana Memorial Scholarship & Library Project For Undergraduates

Humans are born to help other humans, once said, a philosopher. We as LEOs have
pledged to help others who are in need. In the university there are enough people in need of help, we thought. Inspired by the ideas of LEO Chalitha Gunawardhana we initiated two continuous Educational projects for them. Here is an overview of them.

Piumal Gunawadhana Memorial Scholarship

In memory of Engineering undergraduate , an old boy of Rahula Collage‐Mathara & a brother of LEO Chalitha,late Piyumal Gunawardhana, Pumal Piyumal Gunawardhana Memorial Fund for scholarships & LEO Club of UOM have joined together to award scholarships for undergraduates who are in need of financial assistance.

Currently 3 level 1 students, in need of financial assistance are awarded with 10 monthly
installments of Rs1000 during the 1st academic year. The money will be directly transferred to the selected candidate’s bank account each month, by the memorial fund and LEO Club will be responsible for selection and monitoring of the scholarship program.

Priority will be given for students considering
• Net Monthly Income Of the family
• Demise of parent(s)/bread winner
• Family members still in primary, secondary or tertiary education
• parent(s)/bread winner suffering from long term health problems/disabilities.
• General conduct of the student.

The memorial Fund stated that in the future with the accumulation of funds, they’ll be able to lengthen the tenor of the scholarship and expand in to many candidates.

Library Project

One of the essentials for Undergraduates studying under any discipline is study material &
books. Yet there are always some who can’t afford them at the outset due to financial
barriers. Also there are some who no longer need the books which they used few years ago. Our library project is aimed at collecting books from the latter and maintaining a small library for the use the former.

As the beginning we were able to collect number of “Advanced Engineering Mathematics”, “Mechanics of Machines” & “Engineering Thermodynamics” Books. You also can contribute to this, by handing over any of the books especially used by 1st & 2nd year students, to LEO Chalitha.

You can enlighten the life of someone you don’t know, by giving something you no longer need.

Leo Club of University of Moratuwa - 5 years of Excellence

Five years back a set of undergraduates from University Of Moratuwa joined their hands to form the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa.

In 2003 with the help of Lion Lester Aponso, District Chairman for Leo's of Leo District 306A (2002/2003) and Leo Shyana Wijayaratne, District President of Leo District 306A (2002/2003) and also with the permission of university authority, Leo Club of University of Moratuwa was established in 27th June 2003, as the SECOND university based Leo Club in Sri Lanka and as the FIRST in Leo District 306A. Lions Club of Dehiwala North, a leading Lions Club in District 306A, provided the sponsorship for the club. As the university authority, Dr. Saman Thilakasiri took the challenge of the Patron and Mr. Kithsiri Samarasinghe took the responsibility of Senior Treasurer.

The installation ceremony organized by the parents Lions Club took place on the 27th of July 2003 at Lions Activity Center, Moratuwa. 38 engineering undergraduates were installed as Charter Members of Leo Club of University of Moratuwa on that day.Under the presidency of Leo Nadun Gunawadena and the guidance of uncle Ravi (Lion Ravi Rajapathirana - Leo Advisor) and the help of DP Leo Shehan the club completed its first leoistic year, being the runner-up for the best new club of the district in 25th Annual Leo Conference. Also the project "Api Akurata Meli Nowemu" and "Leo Paduru Sajjaya" took the attention of whole Leo District.

The club has not looked back since that and has continued its expansion and kept increase in services to the university and to the community.

In leoistic year 2004/2005 the club was lead by Leo Mahesh Prasanna Abeywickrama. Unfortunately he left us at an unexpected time.Upon his deceased Leo Chatura Gunawardane took the club and brought it to a greater height. By this time the district was divided in to 2 districts A1&A2 the club was shifted to 306A2.The club was re born with the great leadership of Leo Tharanga Gunasekara. In the inaugural district conference of 036A2 we were awarded 13 project awards 6 individual awards and five district and club awards. We were the most outstanding club in the district.

Since then the Leo club of UOM remains the most outstanding club in the district.The number of awards we achieved in 2nd district conference was 18 that was the result of the leadership provided by Leo Buddhi Hettiarachchi.In leoistic year 2007/2008 under the presidency of Leo Namal Karunarathne the club was again awarded as the best club. We achieved 12 project awards 7 individual awards and 2 district and club awards.

Leo Conference 2008 ! Well Done from DCL Lion Noel Palliyaguru


District governor Lion Kamal Visited our home last evening. He praised you all. He praised that this was the most marvelous Leo conference he has ever participated. I was so happy that i felt like floating in the sky!


My dear Leos ! you have done it. You have performed cleverly and you have made it a challenge to others. New Leos who came from far away areas would have brought back unforgettable memories with them.


Novel experiences and sweet memories that they gathered would echo within their ear drums for years.


All the Lions participated admired the entire conference. Lion Kanchana , Lion Shyana and Lion Shehan Kumar were among them.


You have proven that you are better than any other Leo in this country.


I am proud of you all !!

Sri Lanka urges world to 'wake-up' on terror

The suicide assassination of a top Sri Lankan minister should be a "wake-up call" to the international community to combat terrorism, the foreign minister said.

Sri Lanka's highways minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle, 55, was killed together with 13 others in a blast at the start of a marathon outside the capital Colombo.

On Sunday morning (6 April), scores of runners and onlookers gathered at the starting line of the marathon in Weliweriya, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the capital Colombo, as part of the national celebrations of the upcoming Sinhalese New Year.

Jeyaraj Fernandopulle, the Minister of Highways, approached the starting line with a flag he planned to wave to start the race when the bomb exploded.
The Minister died on the spot, along with 13 others including former Olympic marathoner K.A. Karunaratne and national athletics coach Lakshman de Alwis, in total more than 90 were wounded.

Karunaratne competed in the 1992 Olympic marathon and the 1993 World Championships. He won gold in the marathon and 10,000 meters at the 1991 South Asian Games, defending his marathon title in 1993.

We utterly condemn this outrage by LTTE. To target those innocently involved in a sporting event is reprehensible.

Leo Harith joined the Leo movement as a member of the Leo Club of Carey College - District 306 C1 and after his education he transferred to the Leo Club of Colombo Mid City where he stood out as a reliable and outstanding Leo of the District Council. With the redistricting Leo Harith transferred to the Leo Club of Nugegoda Mid Town where he served until the time of his death.

Leo Harith Suraweera was elected as the 2nd District President of Leo District 306 C2 for the Leoistic Year 2006/07 while also being elected as the Leo Multiple District Vice President that same year. He was elected as the supreme leader for Leos of Sri Lanka for this Leoistic year 2007/08 and served as the Multiple District President until it was abruptly cut short.

What campers have to say after successful leo camp - 2008

Leo Heshan
Leo Club of Colombo (Host)
This was my first Leo Youth camp and without any doubt I could say that it’s been a memorable event for me. At the beginning I was anticipating only for a fun event. But the organizing team was able to evolve this event to a collection of a fun, educational and moral boosting event. Ultimately, in my own words... the event was a blast.

Yes, we needed to wake up early morning, work according to a very tight schedule, but what really amplified through these tasks was very important. I learned more about both my physical and mental capabilities. What am I good at, and what I need to improve on. I learnt both aspects of a team player and a team leader. I learnt to stand out from the crowd and make myself “heard”. Some tasks were both physically and mentally challenging, which I think was incredibly beneficial, thus enabling me to push my own boundaries further than ever and expose myself to new experiences.

The organizing team was a clear inspiration. It’s not easy to manage 60 to 65 people for continuous three day period. There hardly were any errors, and the organizers totally proved themselves to us on their expertise in event planning. Their commitment and dedication and commitment to make this task a hit, was golden.
Leo Charitha Liyanage
Leo Club of Piliyandala
Throughout the camp we gain loads of things to our lives. We had the opportunity of acquainting different people and learn about team spirit, time management, self confidence, sportsmanship and lot more. Even though there were some misunderstandings, we manage to overcome them and achieve our goal. Basically, the camp was truly good and exhilarating. I sincerely thank everyone who works really hard on giving us this tremendous opportunity!
Leo Leyon
Leo Club of Colombo Millennium

This CAMP was the best I have attended. The Location was excellent had ample space. More over since it was in Ratnapura, everyone got the chance of getting to know each other on the way. Food was good.

Asitha and the committee did a superb job. Also Good Discipline was maintained.
The Parliamentary debate was more like a quarrel. This was not the way it used to be before. At the end the essence was lost… We can probably introduce a bit of calmness (not a lot) so as to make it end like a debate.
I’m delighted to tell you that this camp was just excellent. Sorry for those who missed it. It was a bad miss for them.

Leo Sumudu
Leo Club of Colombo (Host)
Camp in my point of view was a really success. It made a big change in these two districts, 306 A1& A2. Being a committee member, I am proud about the ultimate result of all the sacrifices made.

Though we generally expect a camp to be an event packed with games & excitement, the camp co chairpersons were able to add novelty by introducing a seminar on Leadership Development. I believe we achieved more than what we seek for. Got new contacts, had fun and in plain enjoyed to the greatest extent.


Leo Sanjaya
Leo club of Wadduwa Metro
The District Presidents and the organizing committee did a great job for all of our Leo members of 306 A1-A2. That Camp can be appreciated by all of our Leos who participated for the camp, we learnt many things form that Leo Camp, like, how to get on with various type of people and work as a team and also that was really help full to build up our capabilities and the relationship.
And I think if a real Leo goes to a Leo Camp like that He or She will never forget to take part that opportunity once again. It was a Wonderful Leo Camp and I hope the same will continue in the future.
Leo Isuru Senadheera
Leo Club of University of Moratuwa
In order to rise to the challenges and in keeping with the Leo motto of Leadership, Experience and Opportunity , Every year a Leo Camp is organized.
This year Leo camp is much more special one because it renovated the brotherhood of two Leo districts which were separated some times back. It was something special for me also since it was the first time I have ever participated to a youth camp. In my personal opinion, it was the best event I have ever participated as a Leo.

Through this camp I got lot of valuable Experiences to my life. The values of Working on time, team work, etc are endless. Small games on team building added a meaningful joy there. Everything was new to me.

One thing I realized during the camp is how exercises keep our lives fresh. In those three days I felt a real difference. Normally I was really difficult me to work on time. But however I had to do it to secure our team.
Some Leos mentioned they did stuff on camp which they never did before in there lives. That was really great.

The session we had on LEADERSHIP was excellent! That lecture motivated all of us to be a pioneer in the society. The games like treasure hunting brought a real CHALLENGE to our lives. The camp fire, parliament debate and drama sessions provided us the OPPORTUNITY to come up with our capabilities.
Finally, looking back the camp, it was a real success which built the UNITY among the two districts. I feel what we built there was a brotherhood. So, a Leo camp is a unique place to build relationship, to gain lot of experiences and to build your personality. If you look back to this article again, you will find that all the things of ‘Leadership-Experience-Opportunity’ and ‘Unity through Challenge’ are among my experiences in the camp. So I recommend to all Leos not to miss a camp in future.

Finally, as a Leo as well as a member of organizing committee, let me congratulate Leo Asitha, Buddhi, Nadeesha and Ricky for the job well done. And I also suggest holding a joint camp next year as well.


Leo Nadee
Leo Club of Colombo (Host)

Leo camp 2007/2008 was my 1st Leo camp and my very first camp in my life time. I was so much of fun to be with Leos from many walks of life. From the beginning to the end I enjoyed the company of all the Leos and Lions as well.

It would have been more fun if we were given a bit more time to rest and sleep. Especially as soon as we reached the camp.

I think next time a small print of the camp time table has to be given to each and every participant rather than pasting it in the main hall. And camp chairman/s must communicate accurately. Because we were mislead 2, 3 times due to miscommunication.
But overall I would like to say it was a great event. On the 2nd of February I embarked on a journey that was to be the most enjoyable 3 days of my life.

Day 1

After a long journey we arrived at the International Center for Training Rural Leaders, Yodhagama – Embilipitiya. We were taken to the ‘Parliament’ which was declared as the Head Quarters of the camp. I consider it a great honour that I was chosen to lead our group the ‘Embili-pits’.

We participated in different team building activities. The quiz competition is where our group shined, winning the first place. The day ended with a talent show providing every one with a chance to bring out their different talents.

Day 2
By 5.30 in the morning everyone was up and about and getting ready for the morning PT session. After the exercise we engaged in a treasure hunt. We searched high and low of every nook and corner looking for clues. After an inspiring presentation on leadership and vision we headed for the play ground for the cricket tournament. Even the girls played an active role in this game.

After a humorous parliament session with a new ‘Senkolaya’ we proceeded to the camp fire area. Even though it was drizzling the Leos stood their ground and went on with the magnificent event of the Camp Fire , which started off with a colourful fire works display. As the fire slowly died down it brought to an end of another amazing day of the camp.
Day 3

The hike is one of the best team building activities we went through. From crawling under bridges to walking on suspended ropes, from running through bushes to jumping over high walls. From the strongest to the weakest member we all helped each other to get through each obstacle. Both girls in our group participated in this daring event. After the exiting hike we had a mock meeting followed by a hilarious ‘mada’ presentation. This brought the end of the camp events.

I won the Most Tidiest Camper award (to the surprise of my parents).

As we packed our bags to leave the thought that was in all our minds was”I can’t wait till the next Leo Camp in 2009!!
