Route 87 gets its name from the Colombo-Jaffna bus route, which is indeed a proper fit, as the Rotaract Club of IIT, joins hands with the Rotaract Club of Chunnakam to engage in a cultural exchange program. This is the first time in history that a Rotaract club based in Colombo and in Jaffna have teamed up to execute a cultural exchange program.
Route 87 will be conducted in two phases;
Phase one: a visit to Jaffna by the Rotaract Club of IIT where we will interact with the Chunnakam club members and embrace their culture, create amazing memories and build new friendships. We will be leaving to Jaffna on the 12th of August, where we hope to spend the weekend with our hosts and return back to Colombo early Monday morning on the 14th of August.
Phase two: the visit of the Rotaract Club of Chunnakam to Colombo. Here the roles will be reversed as it will be the Chunnakam club’s turn to have a taste of our culture and we become their humble hosts. Phase two will be executed on a weekend in September, the exact date is yet to be confirmed.
