meets aspiring leaders
2, 2005 -
Chandrika Kumaratunga yesterday 1st March met with a group of Sri Lankan
participants of the forthcoming Future World Leaders Summit in Washington.
The 58 students chosen from 23 leading schools in the island will leave on
“Absorb as much as you can, the good and the bad, so that you can then
come back and analyze and decide what is good for our country and for
yourself,” said the President wishing them well.
The President advised the young student leaders, “When you participate in
this programme what is important is that you do not only think of yourself
but that you put your country first. Use what you absorb out of this
experience to participate in the building of your country.”
The Summit organized by Presidential
Classroom Inc., the oldest civic education organization in America will
have delegates from over 40 countries this year. Sri Lanka has been
participating in this summit
as a full country delegation since 2000.
