The location has been chosen, the budget is set, the team has assembled, volunteer applications are coming in, a few international interns have already come, speakers and cricketers are being confirmed, and we are well on our way to having another phenomenal conference towards the journey for a totally reconciled Sri Lanka.
So far we have had two interns from the United States arrive and begin working. They have been here for two weeks and have been able to travel the island a little bit and see how the SLU team works. Ben just graduated from Gordon College with a degree in communications and film; he will be working on a music video with the SLU theme song and a documentary on the SLU team itself: what drives the individuals, how they came together, etc. Theresa is in her last year at Gordon and is studying international affairs and peace and conflict studies. She will be working on all volunteer relations for the conference. We are excited to have them here and are putting them both to work!
