The third successive fully-fledged computer laboratory with internet and other modern facilities was donated to Dombagoda Maha Vidyalaya at Ahangama, Matara under the continuing ESOFT-Sirasa ‘E-Thilina’ community service initiative, recently. ESOFT Metro Campus, which has launched the ‘E-Thilina’ community service oriented initiative in partnership with Sirasa Television, donates a fully-equipped computer laboratory every month to a deserving school. This program is implemented on the basis that such a vital facility is unavailable in a school despite the presence of students either clever at IT (Information Technology) or keen to pursue the subject as part of their educational curricular and for professional advancement in the long-term. The maiden computer laboratory under this ongoing initiative was donated to Kumbukwewa Maha Vidyalaya at Ibbagamuwa, Kurunegala, while the second facility was provided to Sevamuktha Kandoru Navodya Maha Vidyalaya at Polonnaruwa. The ceremonial opening of the new, fully-equipped computer laboratory at Dombagoda Maha Vidyalaya at Ahangama, Matara, under the ‘E-Thilina’ community service project, was held under the patronage of ESOFT Metro Campus Managing Director Dr. Dayan Rajapakse, General Manager Upul Dissanayake, Assistant Manager Branch Operations Harsha Ravindra, Manager Matara Branch Damith Pathirana, Manager Galle Branch Menaka Alawatte, Sirasa Rupavahini Programs Manager Thanuja Jayawardena, Programs Executive Sanath Nandana, MTV/MBC Sales Manager Daminda Nissanka, Networks Manager Susantha Samaramadu and Dombagoda Maha Vidyalaya Principal Upali Jayawardena. With roots going back to the year 2000, ESOFT has today grown to be the largest private sector education network in Sri Lanka due to the extensive coverage that we have via our branch network which includes ESOFT Metro Colleges, ESOFT Regional Campuses and ESOFT Metro Campuses. Initially starting with IT and computing, today ESOFT has grown in to a diversified education provider in the fields of ICT and Computing, Business and Management, Engineering, Hospitality Management, and English. ESOFT is accredited by the BCS – The Chartered Institute for IT, and also by Edexcel (UK). ESOFT is also the Strategic Partner of London Metropolitan University, UK to exclusively offer their undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in Sri Lanka. ESOFT is also the largest course provider for the BIT Degree of the University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC). ESOFT Higher Education Institution’s website is www.esoft.lk.
