The objective of the project was to take the Sinhala and Tamil New Year spirit to the homes of our Scouts, as we could not organized the Colombo Scouts Avurudu Uthasawaya on 4th April at Thurstan College Grounds as planned earlier.
The Colombo Scouts Virtual Avurudu included seven (7) Avurudu games which were digitally adopted and was launched on 7th April 2020. The creatively crafted digital games attracted thousands of Cubs and Scouts in Colombo and was conducted through the CSYAG Facebook page until 12th April 2020.
