Students of two rural schools whose classrooms were in temporary shelters have been provided purpose-built classrooms buildings under Ceylinco Life’s on-going community initiative that supports disadvantaged schools around Sri Lanka.


The country’s life insurance leader recently donated a classroom each to the Narawila Muslim Kanishta Vidyalaya in Koswatta in the Chilaw Educational Zone, and to the Sampur Sri Murugan Vidyalayam in Mutur, Trincomalee.

This project helps create a more conducive environment for children endeavouring to study even under daunting circumstances and discomforts.”
