It gives me great pleasure to address you as the chairman of Colombo Round Table1 for the year 2015/16 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. The highlight projects such as the Cricket campaign, Amazing race and many other projects have put RT1 back in the map and I am looking forward to having RT1 work with the rest of the tables in Sri Lanka and taking this great movement forward in strength to strength.
