COMMUNITY

Driving excellence in the community

We are committed to building a strong community. This helps us remain relevant in business and to deliver superior value across the organisation. We understand the importance of a holistic approach towards building excellence and therefore improving the social and economic well-being of the community in essential. We ensure that purposeful investments are made to create value and help build better communities in our country.

As a positive force in the local community we have rolled out many initiatives to deliver better irrigation solution and easy access to clean and safe water. We ensure investments in infrastructure, knowledge and service support are provided to add value to our efforts, thereby putting our technology and expertise to work. By doing so we are driving real benefits for our customers, employees, and partners. Our endeviours in the community include safe drinking water initiatives that were implemented at the Kottawa Junior School and Boossa Maha Vidayalaya in Galle, Halabe Kanishta Vidyalya in Nikawaratiya and the Palugasdamana Maha Vidyalaya. A comprehensive sprinkler irrigation system was also established at the Boossa Maha Vidayalaya to support the development of their agriculture garden and green house. We have also extended our focus in the community by setting up ahome garden project for the inmates of the Mental Hospital Rehabilitation centre in Mulleriyawa which has supported them in their recovery process.

We also engage in other value driven initiatives that help us to build partnership for social development and to touch people’s lives. 150 solar lamps were distributed to two IDP camps of Kadiragama and Raamavil situated in the areas of Vavuniya and Jaffna. Solar lanterns were also provided to students of MulativuOlumadu Vidyalaya to help them study for their examinations.

We have been supporting the communities where we live and work for more than 100 years and today we are more involved through our activities that enhance the wellbeing of people and society.
