The Annual Volunteer Recognition Day for the year 2014/15 was held on the 15th June 2015 under the patronage of JKH Chairman Mr. Susantha Ratnayake, recognizing the invaluable contribution of our volunteers in enabling the success of our projects. For the 2014/2015 financial year, 586 volunteers enlisted into various projects recording over 1212 volunteer engagements via the Foundation alone.
Each and every one of our volunteers received a certificate for their commitment towards the Foundations’ projects. A distinction was made between volunteer contributions as Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates were given out accordingly. A selected few received a special certificate of recognition for their time, dedication and commitment towards volunteerism that went beyond expectation. Hasanka Wijesinghe received a V SPARC award for her contribution towards the Vocational Training Programme at Cinnamon Grand while Forum Theatre Volunteers, Sachini Abewickrama, Pramukshi Kariyawasam, Savindi Lucas, Shehara Alahakoon, Ashraaq Wahab, Chenura Obeysekera, Rukshan De Soyza and Deanna Jayasundera received a Team V SPARC award for consistently providing their time, ideas and acting skills during WAVE sessions. A special award was also given to Ivan Perera for his significant impact towards HIV awareness resulting in the achievement during 2014/15 of the cumulative milestone of 30,000 persons.
