Perera & Sons (P&S), from its humble beginnings have come a long way in becoming one of Sri Lanka’s most widespread F&B business chains. P&S has generously contributed towards many CSR activities in various forms throughout the years. 

In March, P&S together with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, the Anuradhapura District Chamber of Commerce and the Divisional Education Director, Villachchiya, planned to implement a CSR initiative fulfilling an urgent need of desks and chairs to Grade 6 students of Siddartha MahaVidyalaya of Pemaduwa in Anuradhapura District.

Pemaduwa Siddaratha MahaVidyalaya currently has 650 students. Majority of these students come from farming families, who have been affected due to the severe drought in the area for three consecutive seasons. 

100 desks and chairs were handed over to the schoolby P&S at the beginning of the second term at a small ceremony with the participation ofthe Anuradhapura District Chamber of Commerce, the Divisional Education Director, Villachchiya, the Principal, teachers, invitees, and the students of the schools.
