  • Carries out solar installation project at rural school

Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd. (Allianz Lanka), one of the fastest growing insurance service providers in Sri Lanka, recently carried out a solar installation project at a rural school in Warawewa, uplifting the facilities for education and overall quality of life of the students in the community. This is the company’s first sustainability initiative for 2021and is in line with the group’s Climate Change and Decarbonisation Strategy of encouraging solutions for tomorrow’s climate. 

Following a stringent selection process, the Market Management team picked NW/Maho/Giribawa Hettiearachchigam Primary School in Warawewa as the school with the greatest need for this solar installation. The school now has a solar panel with a capacity of 3kWh (a 7 solar panel unit) which provides its complete electricity requirements. In addition to this, some essential equipment and stationery was donated to the school and students. Close to 50 children from farmer families between the grades of 1-5 and five teachers will benefit from this benevolent gesture by Allianz Lanka. 

Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Gany Subramaniam dedicated the solar panel to the school together with Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd. Chief Marketing Officer Mangala Bandara, Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd. Assistant General Manager – Market Management Samantha Gunawardena, and several other representatives from Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd.  “At Allianz, sustainability has always been at the very core of our DNA, as we focus on long term outcomes focussed on how we can make the world a more resilient place.
