About The Project
MinorMatters is an innovative and first of its kind national initiative with the aim to promote religious freedom and coexistence in Sri Lanka. As a web-based platform, MinorMatters seeks to raise awareness on issues surrounding freedoms of religion and belief. The project’s main objectives are to support interfaith communities and enhance coexistence.
Carried out in partnership with different faith groups, the project uses digital technology as a way to equip and empower citizens, focusing primarily within the youth community. MinorMatters supplements its online work through a web platform and social media channels, with mapping of religious freedom violations against faith communities, religious freedom trend analysis, and training for youth on advocacy and digital citizenship.
Through the Rewind; Rebuild initiative, the MinorMatters web-platform will be further developed to include an online museum which will memorialize religious freedom violations and promote positive dialogue around these issues. The latter will be implemented through an e-learning platform which will increase literacy on freedoms of religion and belief, especially amongst children and youth.
