Cashwagon embarks on first CSR project

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Saturday, 11 August 2018 02:07

Cashwagon which provides digital financial services (www.cashwagon.lk) has continuously worked to simplify the complex and often long financial processes in Sri Lanka to keep in line with similar advancements in other South Asian countries. Having achieved great success in their business activities, the company recently undertook its first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. The project chose the Weherawatte Junior School, located in a low income and difficult area in the Kalutara District, to donate school equipment and other educational material.

It was found that the children in the school had a great need for an activity room in the primary school. So the main purpose of the CSR project was to provide an activity room for the primary classes with equipment and material for it. In addition the company also donated books and educational equipment to students of the Weherawatte Junior School for their studies; this was greatly appreciated by the teachers who worked in this school. The Cashwagon company on this occasion was represented by Cashwagon Sri Lanka Head Samila Fernando, Operations Manager Supun Sangadasa, Customer Services Supervisor Janani Ferdinando, Quality Control Manager Jithmi Fernando and several others. An activity room for the primary school children was a great shortcoming in the school and the principal thanked Cashwagon for their generous contribution. The Cashwagon management in the meantime said that they hoped to continue with several similar CSR projects in future.
