Leading integrated financial services provider HNB FINANCE PLC, celebrated children’s day 2020 with a steady focus on identifying and nurturing positive habits and creative expression in children getting educated in rural schools in the country. Sponsored under the company’s popular ‘Yaalu Lama Ithurum Ginuma’, the series of events took place under the stringent guidelines and protocols pronounced by the health authorities, including strict social distancing and sanitization procedures.
Spearheaded by its branches in Vavuniya and Homagama, HNB FINANCE held celebrations in two rural pre-schools in Maharambaikulam, Vavuniya and Dampe, Meegoda, with participation from parents, students and teaching staff. The engaging and informative programme held sessions to educate parents on how to better support their children’s needs in addition to a fun art workshop that allowed the little children to test the full limits of their colourful imagination. Under HNBF’s ‘ Yaalu Lama Ithurum Ginuma’ sponsorship, valuable school books and special educational kits were distributed among all students at the two pre-schools.
“We consider it our responsibility and privilege to help mould and support our future generation as they work and grow to create a better society and world. A big part of this process is instilling and cultivating great qualities in them when they are young, when parents and teachers have a major part to play in their development. This is why we focused our programme on first educating these gatekeepers so that they can identify and nourish positive traits and creative expression in their children at a young age, an effort that will undoubtedly help them thrive educationally and socially. As always, we will continue to remain dedicated to doing our part in helping our country’s children grow in a fruitful, safe environment.” Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer HNB FINANCE Chaminda Prabhath stated.
