Sample something a little bit different each week at Godfrey Tanner Bar with Tanner Tuesday, from knitting to open mic and debates - Tanner Tuesday is fun, free and the perfect excuse to be at the pub on a school night.
This week meet Shanil Samarkoon from Empower Projects. Shanil Samarakoon is 27 year old social entrepreneur with a rich blend of cross-cultural and social sector experience. He grew up in Botswana, Malawi and then his native Sri Lanka. However, it was in the aftermath of the 2004 Tsunami in Sri Lanka that he discovered a calling to live a life of contribution. He has since been involved in a range of relief and development projects in both Sri Lanka and Malawi. After coming to Sydney for his postgraduate education, he founded Empower Inc in 2009 based on observations made across these life affirming experiences.
Doors open at 6pm for this special Tanner Tuesday event and entry is free.
