Bridge2Peace, Education in Sri Lanka

Recently, I had the pleasure to meet the founders of Bridge2Peace, a wonderful group of people that is working to establish quality education in Sri Lanka and around the world.

It was amazing to see what a few committed people have accomplished in the last two years, starting from scratch. They’ve established their first school, educating over 50 children in a country devastated by civil war, violence, and the tsunami disaster.

The Nevada-California region of Phi Theta Kappa has made Bridge2Peace’s mission their regional project. Many of the honors students plan to travel to Sri Lanka to teach during the summer, and several chapters are raising funds for the school’s daily operations. In support, Better World Books has pledged to donate 25 cents to Bridge2Peace, for every qualifying book received from Nev-Cal Phi Theta Kappa chapters. This will likely produce thousands of dollars in funding for the Sri Lanka school.

I’m proud to say that Better World Books can contribute to the success of this amazing project, started in response to the tsunami disaster of Dec 2004 by four passionate and inspired people.
