Point Dewundara to Point Pedro is a project organized by a few Leo Clubs of Leo District 306A1 and Leo District 306B1, on behalf of the respective districts and Leo Multiple District 306. It was held on 2 and 3 February. The primary goal of the project was to create a better Sri Lanka in which all cultures live peacefully and understand the beauty of other cultures.

The project consisted of two parts. The first was a Cultural Show which Leos performed at the Global Village organized by AIESEC Colombo Central where People from 19 countries showcased the values of their cultures. There the Leos performed traditional Kandyan Dancing, Pahatharata Dancing and a Pathuru Dance which everyone gathered there loved.

As the second part of the project Leos of Down South and Colombo visited Leos of Jaffna on 3 February. They experienced the beauty of Jaffna's culture by walking all over, eating sambaru and idly, doing tree plantation programmes and clean-up programmes. They also visited Nallur, Naga Viharaya, Casuary Beach, Jaffna Fort and the Jaffna Library.
