Jodhaa’s 1st Birthday
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
To my dearest friends and family,
Thank you deeply for joining me and my family in celebrating my first birthday. In case you couldn’t tell already, I love Moana! She is an island girl just like me! Aside from loving Moana for being so darn cute, I admire her for choosing to uphold the greater good above self-interest. She, luckily, was raised without culturally imposed gender constraints and was encouraged and empowered to be a leader on her island. On her journey to save her island, she displays bravery, compassion, and resilience — traits that are key to being an effective leader.
Sri Lanka, by heritage, is my island. The people from my ancestral land are in the midst of rebuilding their lives after years of civil war, and I would love nothing more than to assist with this with all of your help. In place of a birthday gift, I’m kindly asking you to make a donation to the ‘Creating Leaders‘ project being implemented in Kandansamy Nagar by Palmera. ‘Creating Leaders’ is all about providing children and youth with critical life and employment-based skills to facilitate their transition from school into employment. I believe this project can empower the children and youth of Sri Lanka and help create some fabulous leaders who may one day help in the rebuilding process of their own village and possibly even become official village leaders just like Moana!
Please help me help them by donating to my page! In addition to your love, I would consider this the greatest birthday gift of all!
Thank you, in advance!
With all my love,
Jodhaa Parvathi Nirmalananda
