As part of its annual CSR project, the charitable foundation, My Friend, distributed school packs to students from eight schools around the country.


Inspired by the idea ‘Proper education is the key to overcome any challenge in life’, My Friend stepped forward to donate much-needed school packs to ensure children stay in school.


On December 30th 2017, students from  Kandawala Navodya M.V; Kothalawalapura M.V; Rathmalan Hindu College; Dehiwala Tamil M.V; Darmarama M.V; Aththadassi Vidyalaya; St. Anthony’s  School and Thelawala Rahula M.V joyously received school packs handed over by My Friend. The school packs consisted of School Bags, Shoe Vouchers, Exercise Books, Water Bottles and Lunch Boxes.
Commenting on the event, Hameedia Managing Director and My Friend Foundation Founder Fouzul Hameed said: “There can be no doubt that only a proper education can help the nation’s youth overcome any challenge and My Friend has taken on the responsibility to keep children in school by donating essential school needs, just so that students do not drop out because they cannot afford these basic supplies. Now that My Friend has looked after these needs, students can now turn their focus on studies. Committed to ‘helping kids stay in school’, My Friend currently works with many schools in helping needy children obtain a decent education to become responsible citizens of the future. 


The My Friend project sponsors, supports and encourages children to learn and educate themselves.”
My Friend is a project that solely focuses on providing an education to the underprivileged and marginalised children of our society, regardless of cast, creed or religion. The project is the brainchild of Sri Lanka’s premier menswear designer and men’s fashion consultant, Fouzul Hameed, who takes his parents legacy of helping the needy one-step further with the My Friend project.


In the past, ‘My Friend’ has funded thousands of less-fortunate school children, helping them overcome financial obstacles to pursue their schooling. It has also conducted many sustainability and environmental initiatives. 


It has also made positive contributions to schools, Ayurveda hospitals and elders homes to enhance the facilities for the residents. Its projects have helped to achieve social integration and infused new hope for the beneficiaries. My Friend Foundation has always been on the forefront of expanding its reach to less fortunate children, and will continuously do so in the future.
