Etymology

Our community was started by a group of like-minded Sri Lankan people in a quest to create a safe place to express themselves while welcoming others who are in the same wave length. This is why the part ‘Lankan’ is there. Nonetheless our work is not limited to one demographic group and we reached to far more diverse groups, most who share our views. But we decided to keep the name ‘Lankan’ because all our founders want to honor Sri Lanka, the country they love and so proud of.

'Chat' is a sweet term for human communication. Even though we have our own Online Live Chat Service, do not overlook the deep meaning of the term through that online feature alone.

In essence: A concept initiated by a group of likeminded people from Sri Lanka to communicate in an effort to provide a safe place for everyone to express themselves.
