Popular actress, philanthropist and author Michelle Dilhara released her first book, Social Invisibility is not a Fiction it exists, a book that changed the view of society politically, culturally, and religiously. Michelle Dilhara challenged traditional views of Sociology. She proposed a theory, “Theory of alternative social cogwheel for Social Invisibility and Social Exclusion”.
Throughout her book, she gave theories which got the world thinking. She started a campaign “The invisible to visible movement” in July 2019 for Social Invisibility and Social Exclusion, with Dr. Parakrama Warnasuriya from the medical faculty of University of Kelaniya, Emeritus Professor Antonette Perera, Professor Waruna Chandrakeerthi, and Thilina Dhanushka Abewickrama (social media research specialist).
The invisible to visible movement is an attempt to minimize the social exclusion of the people affected due to factors such as their educational status, appearance, disability, old age, being in an orphanage, being homeless, poverty, barriers to full participation in employment of senior citizens, discrimination and violence or anyone who experiences a sense of ignorance or separation from society as a whole.
The objective would be to reinforce adult protective services and create specific hubs focused particularly for the eldery on this problem, which is often ignored in the society.
It would also allow the development of online job markets for the eldery who wish to maintain a productive lifestyle but may face ageism when applying for work elsewhere.
Final objective would be to create a hub for networking and social connection that functions as an alternative to work-based networking after retirement.
