It gives me great pleasure to address you as the chairman of Colombo Round Table 1 for the year 2017/18 and I am proud to say that as a table we have grown in strength in terms of the number as well as in impact.
Our partnership with Emerge to support girls who have faced sexual abuse to get back on their feet and reintegrate with the society is also a matter of great joy to us.
Further CRT1 became the Table of the Year and Tr. Tharindu Amarasekere of CRT1 won the Tabler of the Year award at the Round Table World Meeting held in Tallin, Estonia in August 2017. This is a remarkable achievement for CRT1 as well as Round Table Sri Lanka.
Looking forward to many more great things in the world of Round Table
Colombo Round Table 1 (2017/18)
