Working to make a difference in the communities it serves, David Pieris Group, as part of its ongoing welfare initiatives, donated computers with internet and other modern facilities for the computer laboratory and equipment for the science laboratory of Sampoor Maha Vidyalaya in the Trincomalee district.


This project was implemented by David Pieris Group in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Navy personnel in the area with a view to elevating the level of technical education among underprivileged students in the once war-torn Sampoor. Over 650 students of the Sampoor Maha Vidyalaya will benefit from this project.

As the second stage of the project, the company will construct a toilet complex for the village, while under the third stage, women who are sole breadwinners will be provided with skills training and infrastructure to start their 
own businesses.


To mark the opening of the facility, the Group also donated school bags to the primary school students. 


Speaking at the opening Jayantha Ratnayake, General Manager David Pieris Motor Company said, “We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of education in building a strong and productive economy and nation. We believe it is important that all children have equal access to education and the facilities needed to learn…the best return on our investment would be to see these children succeed in life”. 


The ceremonial opening of the modern computer and science laboratories at the Sampoor Maha Vidyala was held under the patronage  of US  Ambassador to Sri Lanka Atul Keshap, Eastern  Province Governor Austin Fernando,  Chief Minister Ahamed Nazeer Zainulabdeen,  Provincial Minister of Education Thandayuthatani,  Commander Eastern Naval Area and Deputy Chief of Staff of the Navy Rear Admiral Neil Rosayro, David Pieris General Manager Jayantha  Ratnayake,  Divisional Manager (Sales and Marketing) Kosala Rathnayake , Regional Manager Thushara Basnayake and other distinguished guests.
