Sadaharitha Plantations ended 2017 by encouraging the children of employees working in the company’s commercial forestry projects to aspire to achieve academic excellence in the new school year.

All the children from kindergarten to Advanced Level were presented with a set of stationery items appropriate for the age group. This valued CSR project was carried out for the fourth consecutive year distributing 330 sets of stationery items.

Having reached 15 years of successfully engaging in commercial forestry, with over 2,000 acres of sustainable forestry lands and over 28,000 customers and 32 branch offices across the country, Sadaharitha has provided a large number of eco-friendly job opportunities for villagers who lives in the vicinity of the plantation locations in different parts of the country.  In addition to quality human resource management practices Sadaharitha is able to encourage its people to achieve personal development across all employment categories.

“We take great pride in engaging in this CSR activity that benefits our own workers, inspiring their children to aim for excellence. Whilst contributing to preserve Mother Nature, we believe we should play a supporting role for the betterment of the education of these children as they will one day become the future of this country,” said Company’s Director – People Development and OperationsSakunthala Nawarathne. “We also focus strongly on paving the way for an upwardly mobile career path for those who appreciate contributing to creating a greener world,” she added.   

At Sadaharitha, employees are encouraged and assisted to achieve professional development. The company volunteers to meet the entire cost or part of the fee of a diploma or postgraduate or any other accepted course at a recognised institution such as the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM).
