COLOMBO (News 1st) – News 1st’s latest initiative to empower the youth of Sri Lanka – Gammeda V-Force – will get underway on Saturday (July 21). The first project of this initiative is to clean up the North gate entrance of Sigiriya. V-Force was launched under the Gammadda initiative to provide a platform for the youth of this country to place the interests of the country before theirs, and volunteer for a worthy cause.
The clean-up of Sigiriya will be carried out under the guidance of the Central Cultural Fund and the Archeological Department.
“The Gammedda volunteer programme can be identified as a special programme in the history of media. It’s also important in the national heritage of the country. I commend this initiative by the Sirasa media network for their efforts to protect the national heritage of this country and allow our future generations to experience the value of these cites.” – Professor Prashantha Gunawardena, Director General – Central Cultural Fund.
Meanwhile, the “No Kunu” project will team up with the Gammadda V-Force, to clean up the Beira Lake and surrounding areas tomorrow.
“Tomorrow at 8 in the morning we will begin the cleanup project at the Bera lake. I am very happy about the V-Force initiative and that they are going to clean up Sigiriya tomorrow. None of these people are being paid. They have all volunteered. That is a great achievement.” – Sumi Moonasinghe, Founder of No Kunu.
