International Affairs Office in collaboration with International Youth Fellowship Sri Lanka (IYF-SL) organized the Workshop on IYF Mind & Life Change Workshop on 04 December 2018 at the E.O.E Pereira Theater, Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya.

IYF was established in 2001 as a worldwide youth organization and International NGO from South Korea, to raise leaders with a global insight through mind education, activities, and provide realistic solutions to problems in the global village. In Sri Lanka, the IYF has been actively working in schools and universities in many regions of the country.

The gathering was welcomed by Dr. Dhammika Elkaduwe, Head, Department of Computer Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering. The guest lecture was delivered by Mr. Jeong Hwan Oh (Director General of External Cooperation, IYF S. Korea). It was based on the importance of Mind Education and how South Korea rose up from the ashes after the Korean War via mind development. Further, Mr. Hyeonyong Choi (Chairman of IYF Sri Lanka) also shared his thoughts in relation to Mind Change.

The assemble was entertained with a musical performance by Ms. Aesuk Kim using the traditional “Haegum” instrument.

Certificates were presented to the members of IYF team for their efforts at the workshop. Around 400 students from Faculty of Engineering took part in the workshop and the lectures provided were really productive to them.
