The Language Barrier

                      "I do not know their language" said a boy from Hindu College, when I talked to him about the Champions of Change project and about their partner school, Joseph Vaz College, Puttalam. This got me thinking, on what more we can do to break this barrier of language. Mohanathas from Mullaitivu who is also a part of the Road Trip can only speak Tamil. But despite this, he still manages to get along with everyone else in the Road Trip team. He also says that he will be starting Sinhala classes soon, so that he will be able to converse with his fellow brethren.

                    The Champions of Change projects carried out by the Kegalu Vidyalaya students at their partner school Vattapali Mahavidyalayam in Mullaitivu is another prime example of how despite this language barrier we can still reach out and make a change! Like we've all heard - "Where there is a will, there is a way!"
