Sri Lanka’s No. 1 electric cable, ACL Cables PLC, sponsored the walk held to mark the 66th anniversary of Ladies’ College Colombo, a leading girls college in Sri Lanka.
Commenting on this, ACL Cables Managing Director Suren Madanayake said: “ACL Cables has always been a partner in sponsoring many social causes. That is part of our CSR activity agenda. A school is an institution, where children in charge of the future of a country are fashioned into good citizens. The service to the country, and the society provided through such guidance is immense. Ladies’ College Colombo has been in that mission for 66 years, and this is a special occasion for them as a school, as well as the country and society at large. It is the reason we came forward as the main sponsor for the walk.”
