JCJ have just launched a fundraising campaign to generate funds towards Paapedi – a Youth Bike Journey for Climate Justice across Sri Lanka, being run in March by our sister organisation ECO-V. The previous Journey in 2011, Kelani Nadee Yathra was a tremendous success, being hailed as the “most successful environmental education campaign ever run in Sri Lanka” and I can say from personal experience that the transformation in the youth participants was incredible – they were truly inspired and empowered environmental leaders and have gone on to run their own environmental projects in their local communities with our ongoing support.
Please go to www.pozible.com/paapedi. We have a great video from Kanchana Weerakoon, and some fantastic rewards for contributors .
Please share the link to our campaign with your networks, friends and colleagues (see the icons for Facebook etc.). Your support will encourage others to join in! The campaign closes 11th March – but please don’t let that delay you.
