Helping Hands for Education

සිප්සතරට අරුණැල්ලක්

‘Helping Hands for Education’ is a CSR project by Sana Commerce Sri Lanka that focuses on improving access to education for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. This project aims to provide educational resources and support children to overcome the challenges they face in their learning journeys.

The ‘Helping Hands for Education’ project is designed to provide assistance in various forms, such as providing school supplies, building schools or classrooms, and providing essential needs such as water, electricity and many more. The project also encourages employee volunteerism and offers opportunities for employees to engage with the local community and support education-related initiatives.

Every year we get together with our global and local colleagues to initiate different fundraising events to build the necessary funds for our projects and the company has pledged to double every dollar raised by our colleagues.

Providing school supplies to 300 students in 4 rural schools

We identified a key requirement for children to get back to school. We reached out to 4 schools in rural areas in Galle, Nuwara Eliya, Kalutara, and Matara to provide essential kits that contain shoes, school bags, books, and stationery to children who were in need due to the current situation in the country.

Providing ICT Facilities for Dammala Primary School

The CSR program was implemented in several stages, each designed to ensure that the school received the necessary resources. The school shelters 97 students and 5 hardworking teachers who try their best to educate these children who come from families with considerably lower incomes. We delivered a complete classroom which can be used as a Smart classroom or a computer lab with 5 Desktop computers and a laptop.

Classroom Buildings & an IT Lab for Nawagattegama Maha Andarawewa Junior School

We successfully built 3 classroom buildings and an IT and science laboratory for the Maha Andarawewa Junior School in Nawagattegama, as well as renovated other infrastructure to provide a learning-conducive environment. It further donated ten computers and a multifunction printer, furniture for students and teachers, sporting items, musical instruments, and study packs for around 116 students.

A New School Building to Habarana Weragala Vidyalaya

Weragala Vidyalaya located in Habarana currently had 55 students enrolled. This school was one that lacked the basic facilities to provide a conducive learning environment for these students. They didn’t even have a roof over their heads. Sana Commerce Sri Lanka offered a new building, equipped with new facilities.

Proper sanitation unit for Peramaduwa Vidyalaya

We selected T/Kan/Peramaduwa Vidyalaya, which is a school found in Agbopura, Kanthale towards the border of the Eastern Province and the North Central Province, to support by constructing one building to hold classrooms and a proper washroom for the boys. The project estimated an amount of LKR 2,000,000 that the CSR committee raised through fundraising activities and donations.

Water Purifying Filter for The Kahatagollawa Vidyalaya

Kahatagahagollawa Vidyalaya was a small school in Kabithigollawa with only 180 students studying in grades from 1 to 11. The school and the village had been largely affected by CKD and many of them lived too far to seek medical attention. Sana Commerce Sri Lanka committed to investing in fixing a water purifying filter for the school.
