The Shivan Foundation is proud to announce that its founder, Ganesh Velautham, has been short-listed for the 2015 Volunteer Awards (V-Awards) to be held on Saturday 13th February 2016.

The V Awards, a  joint initiative of the United Nations (UN), Government of Sri Lanka and the Capital Maharaja Organisation, were started in 2011 “to honour individuals who make extraordinary and selfless contributions to society through volunteerism, to showcase their altruistic service towards peace and development within the nation, and thereby inspire others to volunteer for social causes.” (*)

Ganesh Velautham is one of 10 candidates short-listed from over 1000 nominations and will be attending the televised event at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre in Colombo.

A live 2 hour stream of the event will be available from the following websites:

Live stream will commence at 16:30 (Sri Lankan time) / 11:00 (UK time).

We wish Ganesh good luck!
