Ropana Nakatha

"Today is the day to start working on something useful so that at the time we realized the real value of starting early we will not regret."

For every single breath we take in, we owe to the trees in the surrounding. Whether living a hundred years or not as long as we live we need fresh air to breath. It is the reason that our ancestors protected the trees for us to survive. It is our responsibility to protect them, grow more of them and help the survival of future generations.

Under this main intention UOM Leos launched another step ahead. The day was Sinhala and Tamil New Year. We were all at homes celebrating, but we never stopped thinking of a new way to connect with the Leos all around the country.

In the auspicious time for starting good work we got together and planted a tree in our home gardens. Though we were not together as in other projects we have done the good deed together at the same time. Leos from many clubs around the country joined with us to launch  the project.

Beyond the reach

Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader; they set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role; it’s always about the goal. That goal they set out will always be beyond the reach of a looser. The more you perform in life, the more you empowered with the so called leadership.

“Beyond the Reach”, the leadership, skills and professional development program organized by the Leo club of University of Moratuwa was a place for the patricipants to evoke the leader within them together with improving professionalism.

The program was held on 25th of March 2017. All those who were there was guided on the day with a CV writing workshop by PDP Lion Isuru Senadheera, Interview facing workshop by PDP Leo Nadeesha Palliyaguru, Workshop on Leadership by LEO Mahendra Amarasooriya of LEO Leadership Institute and skill development activities by District Orientation Committee Chairman, centennial challenge coordinator Leo Kasun Lokugamage.

All those who were there on the day experienced and created an opportunity to become a leader.
