Lanka IOC PLC, Petroleum Resources Development Minister Chandima Weerakkody and Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister Faiszer Musthapha in the presence of Lanka IOC MD Shyam Bohra and other Lanka IOC officials participated in the concluding ceremony of the highly successful ‘English for Young Learners’ project. 


This project was held in collaboration with Faizer Muszthapha Foundation and Cosmopolitan Learning Academy at the Tower Hall Theatre Maradana recently. The programme was a huge success.
Lanka IOC initiated English classes for underprivileged children in collaboration with selected school authorities, the Cosmopolitan Learning Academy and the Faizer Muszthapha Foundation, a non-profit organisation formed by Musthapha. The foundation’s involvement is in identifying suitable schools, while the schools’ principals identify suitable children and ensures that children maintain a 100 percent attendance rate at the classes.


The Cosmopolitan Learning Academy provides specially trained English teachers to conduct the classes. Lanka IOC funds the teachers and provides all learning materials for the children including text books, stationary and school bags. During the current financial year about 1,500 children between the ages of six to 15 years from underprivileged localities in the Colombo District attended the six to eight-month English training programme which was concluded with a huge success.
The company acknowledging its responsibility towards the society and has in addition conducted several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives under its theme 
‘We Care’. 


In addition to a series of welfare programmes including assistance for elders’ homes, renovation of healthcare centre, donation of ambulances, wheelchairs and free health camps at diverse locations in Sri Lanka.


Lanka IOC believes that education can alleviate poverty. English education is rapidly becoming important for employment and higher education in Sri Lanka. However, English teaching facilities, particularly in public schools located in underserved communities, are limited. Therefore, children from such communities face a disadvantage in accessing English education.


Lanka IOC MD Shyam Bohra in his statement conveyed, “We believe that the children here today are the leaders of tomorrow and as a good corporate citizen, it is our responsibility to do our best to produce good, educated citizens so as to enhance the development of the country. English is spoken widely in the world and the best way to empower these children is to teach them the skills of the English language in a methodical manner. The happiness we have got from these projects can never be measured in monetary terms. Our reward is the deep-seated satisfaction we get by seeing these children excel in competitions, present themselves and perform with great confidence and ease, all in the English language.”
