LB Finance conducted the ‘Sisu Shakthi’ O/L examination seminar series with an overwhelming success facilitating more than 1,100 students. A total of 10 seminar series were held in Mahiyangana and Viyaluwa educational zones. This is the sixth annual O/L seminar series, conducted by LB finance in collaboration with the Science society of University of Colombo.

Sisu Shakthi O/L examination seminar series is a long term CSR effort by LB Finance, where they reach out to underprivileged schools in the rural areas in Sri Lanka and support the schools by conducting seminars and providing additional learning material and school supplies for O/L students. The objective of this CSR activity is to enhance the livelihood of these poverty struck areas towards a better and prosperous future. As a result, the students of these areas will be further empowered to face modern challenges of the society with enhanced knowledge. LB Finance also provides model exam paper books and past paper books for science and mathematics.

Commenting on this distinct initiative, LB Finance Executive Director Niroshan Udage stated, “The primary objective of this seminar series is to guide the children to meet the fundamental challenges of facing a standardised national exam in a holistic and skilful manner and enabling them to obtain higher results and to brighten their future. These seminar series focuses on developing competency level, planning skills, knowledge and time management abilities of students by providing an individual attention to the each and every student who are participating for this seminar series.”

LB Finance is propelled by the desire to contribute to the enhancement of quality of life, experienced by everyone; that’s been LB Finance’s vision since the start. Through this project, we aim to enable more children to attend school regularly and to help local communities to improve their educational standards in an independent and consistent manner.

LB Finance continues to remain a pioneer in aligning the needs and interests of Sri Lankans with the many CSR initiatives carried out over the years. As a responsible corporate citizen, LB Finance has etched CSR as one of the top priorities amongst the various business activities it engages in. The commitment to uplift the wellbeing of citizens of the nation with many different initiatives is a strong depiction of LB Finance’s pledge to factor social responsibility and sustainability into their business.
