Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is home to rich religious, ethnic, and linguistic diversity. Instead of being celebrated, these differences became fuel for a 26-year civil war, creating deep divisions within society. The country is now recovering from the civilian and economic tolls. We are working to promote cooperative engagement across traditional dividing lines in Sri Lanka to create a more inclusive national identity, especially through work with youth, women, and community media.
