We are looking to share heart-warming stories of everyday Sri Lankans that embrace common values through photo-stories.

For Whom?

Anyone between the age of 18 to 29 years.


  • Take a photograph that depicts a moment during which you have shown or experienced values such as compassion, respect, tolerance, peace, honesty or cooperation. Make sure to share the story behind the picture with us.
  • Please follow the following guidelines for your story:
    1. Word limit (250-300) in any language
    2. Anecdotal: a kodak moment you have experienced with family, friends, strangers or even a pet.
    3. Key question: What value(s) did you learn following this experience? Did you realise anything new about yourself- changes in attitude or lifestyle choices? Email your photograph(s) and story to:


Let your story inspire and encourage others to embrace everyday values.
