The Abans Welfare Society recently held its ninth Annual School Supply CSR initiative, where over 1,000 children of Abans Group employees received all their necessities for the new school year. The event – which was organised by Abans Warehousing Division Deputy Director Ajith Jayasinghe and Abans Warehousing Division Deputy General Manager Ranjith Gajanayake, took place in December at the Abans Kollupitiya Head Office and the Kadolkale facility in Seeduwa. 

The kids, ranging from Montessori level to Grade 12, were presented with comprehensive packages that consisted of school shoes, backpacks, lunch boxes, exercise books and stationery items. 

Abans Group Director Dr. Saroshi Dubash presided over the occasion, along with key senior management and staff from Abans Group who were also in attendance at the event. 

In an inspirational speech delivered to Abans employees and their families, Dr. Dubash emphasised the importance of hard work, persistence and determination in assuring academic and career success in the future. She also stated that children should fully pursue their desired goals while focusing on developing into responsible and conscientious Sri Lankan citizens. The speech was concluded with a reiteration of Abans’ strong commitment towards ensuring that every child of every socioeconomic background receives access to a high-quality education.

Recognising that investing in the next generation can initiate greater social mobility and improve the local economy, Abans has always given high prominence to child welfare and youth development. In accordance to this, Abans has developed a CSR policy solely directed towards enhancing Sri Lanka’s current educational sector as well as offering continuous support to low-income students. Through these efforts, Abans hopes to help build a highly skilled and educated workforce that will give rise to progressive dividends for this country.
