WRITING DOVES

Weaving Words of Hope

It is in your hands to make a better world for all who live in it.
NELSON MANDELA

Writing Doves is a non-profit initiative that aims to promote intercultural understanding among children in Sri Lanka through stories, which are published in Sinhala, Tamil and English. Based on the premise that children’s literature is a tool both to look inward and outward to promote reconciliation in post-conflict contexts, Writing Doves conducts storytelling sessions for children across Sri Lanka to reiterate the value of respecting the ethnic and religious other.

Writing Doves is funded by the U. S. Embassy to Sri Lanka and Maldives and administered by Sarvodaya Sri Lanka.

Our Vision

Provide a platform for children in Sri Lanka to foster interest in reading to build positive cross-cultural relationships

Our Mission
