The Leo Club of Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka was established in 2016 but was lethargic until it begins with a remarkable milestone in 2019 jointly with new leadership and an authentic objective of serving the community while grooming the members. The club assimilates the specialized knowledge and skills of university undergraduates to build competent, devoted, versatile, and qualified colleagues who can develop the state of the community. We identify the contemporary issues in society and address them with our optimum effort jointly with peer Leos and experienced Lions grounding three principles, namely; Leadership, Experience, and Opportunity. Ever since the reactivation, the club has been acknowledged with District awards for projects “PWITHURU SIRIPA”, “MATHATA THITHA”, “FREE TO LIVE”, and “COLOR MY SIGHT”. The project “SIGITHMA” is a magnificent effort of Sabra Leos that has been recognized with the 306 Multiple District award for the best project in the Infrastructure Development category. The club has been recognized with district & multiple wards not only for its outstanding projects but also for the dedicated and splendid performances of the executive board. Also, the club has been appreciated with Lion Awards for Leos for its quality and innovativeness in projects, flourishing new members, forming relationships, and for being one of the top seven Leo Clubs in existence. Besides addressing the current issues, the club is a favorable occasion for everybody to relish and put behind their full calendar.
As the Leo club of Sabaragamuwa University, in the past few years, we created a firm brand name called Sabra Leos. We created this name by serving the community, creating values for members and making our university name high. On this journey, we had to face many hard times but those became the sweetest memories of our teamwork. The most powerful strength of our club is our membership. We have a different kind of pool of talents. With all that effort we can become the 1st runner-up of the best university base Leo Club in the district. This Leo movement helps most Leos develop their leadership and soft skills. That is something that undergraduates can add value to themselves. I hope this experience will help every Leo to go to the peaks of their career life and to gain a work-life balance. I extend my regards to all the Leos, advisors, District and Multiple Leos, Lions and everyone who is with us on this journey. Long way to go, for that, cheers Sabra Leos.
