In April 2016 our Chairman was honoured with a Rotary International ‘Champions of Change’ Award for her work in international community development, and in particular for management of community endeavours in Sri Lanka. The Award was presented by the UK Minister for Social Affairs in the House of Lords at Westminster, London. The ceremony was attended by various Members of the House of Lords, MPs and officers of Rotary Great Britain and Ireland.
Joy said “I am deeply honoured to have received this award but I would like to pay tribute to the many other people in the Project Sri Lanka team without whom our many and various community successes would not have happened. A huge debt of gratitude is owed to all of our sponsors and supporters and I am deeply indebted to the Project’s Board of Trustees for their tremendous dedication and hard work which makes it all possible.”
