Association of Accounting Technicians of Sri Lanka (AAT Sri Lanka) while being engaged in taking accounting education to grass root levels of the country, experienced a pleasant surprise in extending its humane hands to a worthy cause under the auspices of its first CSR project on the theme ‘AAT Samaja Mehewara’ (Social Mission), through the intervention of social media. It happened as a result of responses by a Facebook group in reply to a suggestion published by the AAT Sri Lanka official Facebook page offering support to rural schools.

The opportunity of donating books to the school library and sports equipment to Galpitiya Junior School in a hamlet in Galgamuwa division, Maho educational zone Kurunegala district arose in that manner. Coming under the category of most rural schools, with 270 students from grade 1 to 11 and 18 teachers, it is located near Kalankuttiya tank which is the Anuradhapura Kurunegala district border. The main occupation of villagers there is Chena cultivation. The area is not only affected by drought but also by wild elephant attacks. Despite all that, the school had gained recognition winning prizes is aesthetics at inter provincial level competitions.



The donation was made to Nihal Rathnamalala, Principal of the school by a team on behalf of AAT Sri Lanka comprising CEO Tishanga Kumarasinghe, Marketing Manager Dinuka Subapanditha and Head of Student Registration and Membership Nadee Perera who visited the school recently.

Being a non-profit oriented educational institute, AAT Sri Lanka intends to extend benefits to schools in rural areas through this social mission project to develop knowledge and skills of students. (AAT Official Facebook page – www.facebook.com/AATSriLankaOfficial)
