The Community Development Project Module is part of the curriculum that a Management and Finance Undergraduates of the Faculty of Management and Finance, University of Colombo, must complete for their BBA degree programme. 

In addition to giving the young undergraduates a chance to contribute to the betterment of the country, it serves to inculcate in them the attitude of giving back to society. 

It encourages students to identify a problem faced by a selected community and address it sustainably through their team effort with the support of the society at large. 

Community Development Project Module is part of the curriculum of the Faculty of Management 

Team Titans are one of the twenty-nine teams that have dedicated their efforts to carry it forward this year. 

Under Project Manudam, Titans set out to improve the learning environment of the students at R/Batathota Vidyalaya, with the belief that all students should have an equally pleasant environment and adequate facilities for better learning and development purposes. 

R/Batathota Vidyalaya in Kuruwita, established in 1937 by Ven. Subodhi Thera following the Buddhist Revival is a school registered under Ratnapura Educational Zone and is now under the supervision of its Principal, Mrs D.D.S. Bogahawaththa. Currently, the school educates 43 students – 26 girls and 17 boys – from Grades 1 through 9 with the help of 10 teachers. 

Seeing that the school was operating with an abandoned playground and a single building, with only a few books as a library, the team raised funds to renovate them. 

At the end of 64 successful months, the team gifted the school an equipped playground protected with a fence, a fully-furnished library with more books to read and introduced a library coding system to manage it. 

Under Project Manudam, Titans set out to improve the learning environment of the students at R/Batathota Vidyalaya, with on the belief that all students should have an equally pleasant environment and adequate facilities for better learning and development purposes. 

The related personnel were then advised on the usage and maintenance of the new playground and library to ensure sustainability. 

Through this project, Titans hope to enhance the school’s conditions which will improve the education of the existing students and help attract new students in the future.
