A message from the National Director of SOS Children’s Villages
At present, Sri Lanka is at crossroads in deciding the education of its younger generation. There is a necessity to reform the general education of our children to develop the country economically as well as morally. School education needs to produce worthy citizens who can effectively contribute to making this significant change a reality. Little Minds Strong Values (LMSV) is an outstanding initiative that I think would bridge the gap and create a morally sound generation of children. Mr. Rukshan Perera has used his expertise to touch the hearts & minds of all children through songs and creative visuals based on good values.
