The trainings were conducted in both Sinhala and Tamil by youth trainers who were formed and mentored on the Foundation’s values curriculum prior to the district-level trainings. The following core humanistic values were covered through a series of interactive activities and reflection sessions: active listening, peace, respect, compassion, tolerance, honesty and sincerity, working together and corporation. On this occasion, participants were also presented with the digitized version of the Values Curriculum which is to soon be available on Google PlayStore. In the coming year, the curriculum is to be rolled-out among various youth organizations in each above-mentioned district.
