First Gomihiroi program for the month of August was held on 24th of August 2017 with team Rapid 59. It was a very special program since there were two visitor teams joined together with the Sri Lankan team.
Sputnik was handling 2 internship programs for the academic year 2017 with two groups of students from Tokyo Toyo University and Tokyo University of Agriculture. In total 8 foreign students joined the trash picking program with Sputnik students.
As usual, lots of trash was found on the grounds. Everyone joined hands to arrange the garbage category vise and send for disposal. Obviously the Japanese students were shocked to see so much of trash on the walking tracks of both directions of sputnik and they highly appreciated Sputnik’s endeavor to make Sri Lanka more beautiful and trash-free.
It was a beautiful event with super team work lots of energy and friendship beyond all color, race, nationality and language barriers. Both Sri Lankan and Japanese students made good friends after the event. They exchanged contact information and even clicked lots of photographs to make the day memorable.
It was truly a memorable event for Green bird Sri Lanka.
