Call for volunteers

Colleges in Sri Lanka are looking for student volunteers that are interested in filmmaking and do already have some skills in scene writing, editing or filming. They aim to produce a short film about a vipassana monastery and teach about mindfulness based cognitive therapy principles. The charity project is called “mind unshaken” and aims to help people suffering from depression. If you are interested, please get in touch with Ernest Gunetilleke
