NDB partnered with the Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka to implement a sustainability awareness program for schools islandwide. 

This project under the theme ‘Leaders for Sustainability’ aims to nurture and promote students to act as ‘Sustainability Leaders,’ promoting the conservation of our environment and acting as ‘Change Agents’ of society.

The project was launched in commemoration of Earth Day with the first batch of 20 students and five teachers from Kelaniya Gurukula MV.

The project included a three-day field visit to the Sinharaja World Heritage Centre, where the students were educated and undertook a series of activities including field work to understand the biodiversity, birds and the environment and how to conserve it.

Furthermore, in line with the Bank’s corporate social responsibility agenda, NDB pledged funds for the enablement of such programs in a minimum of 18 such schools where at least six of the schools chosen will be out of Colombo, in areas subject to human-animal conflict.  

NDB has made considerable strides towards the Sri Lankan banking and finance sector, expanding and evolving a range of products and services accessible through its growing branch network. Further details on NDB’s many products can be obtained from its 24-hour call centre, by calling 011 2448888 or by visiting NDB Bank’s website on www.ndbbank.com.
