Every river is beautiful. Because, it is not flow a straight line. No matter how much
good or bad things are met to a river, everything is faced successful for reaching from
correct destination. We who live in the society have to face amazing challenges like a
river. Throughout the past few months , it has been accruing a bitter experiences for
us to engage in our usual activities under this epidemic situation. However, with the
blessing of new challenges, we were able to continue our works successfully , moving
from suitable platform.
I am glad to say that we have a powerful unity for facing challenges strongly in Leo
club of Kesbewa. Accordingly, we were able to initiate was “The Reminiscence” , re-
flecting golden memories in journey of Leoism. Further, we could build up suitable
environment to The Girls Child Development Center with the support of everyone.

PUNCHI IDAKA HINA GODAK

Your greatness is not what you have.It’s what you give. As
Leos we always dedicated to do our best towards the soci-
ety at any moment.

On the 29th of December 2020 we successfully completed
a project called ‘Punchi idaka hina godak’. ‘Punchi idaka
hina godak’ was a project to make a home garden for little
angels who are living in Sri Sangamitta Girls Develop-
ment Center. That day we all gathered there and cleaned
the land they had at the child development center. It was
very difficult for us to clean up the area and make it suita-
ble for gardening because they used the only land they
had for gardening to collect garbage. But we were able to
clean the land within seven hours by proving the quote,
teamwork makes the dream work. We not only cleaned
the land but also we provided a water supply for the gar-
den as well as repaired and painted the swing set in their
backyard. Leo Lakshita donated a compost bin too.

As Leos, we believe part of being a person is about help-
ing others. We can change the world and mark it a better
place. It is in our hands to mark a difference.
