Striving to be a model corporate citizen, we are determined to make the most out of our unique know-how and management resources to fulfil various corporate social responsibilities. Our corporate social welfare initiatives aim to help build a healthy and spiritually rich society. We are committed to give back as individuals and as an enterprise, whilst continuing to make a difference.
Upgrading Educational Facilities
Each year, we select an under privileged school, following which a team of our colleagues would visit the school to identify areas that needs improvement. All students of the selected school are provided with a gift pack, which include a school backpack, books and other stationery items, with the aim of encouraging students to receive a proper education. Our employees volunteer for this project and lend their support to uplift the infrastructure facilities of rural schools.
Together as One – At Times of Need
We always come forward as a family during hardships such as natural disasters, to help not only our employees, but also the community.
We came forth to provide meals, dry rations, clean water and essential medicine and help clean the affected houses and surroundings during the time when the area was affected by floods. Medical camps were also organized to help the communities to ensure that the situation remained under control. Helping our people in times of need is a good gesture that we never hesitate to extend.
We consider ourselves fortunate to have a set of team members who do not hesitate to commit their time and effort to help as and when needed.
Helping to Create a Better Society
We pay attention to under privileged and grief stricken young women who have faced numerous social hardships, as well as differently-able and intellectually disabled breadwinners of families. Whether it is conducting counselling sessions, providing meals as a silent social responsibility project or lending a hand to start self-employment projects, we are committed to do it all; as we believe that it is our responsibility towards the society.
Uplifting Health and Health Related Infrastructure
Health is precious. Thus, we, at North Sails, are always determined to be a good corporate citizen that promotes well being. Following this ethos, throughout our two-decade journey, we have conducted numerous initiatives to mitigate health risks and extend benefits to communities and the environment. We have contributed to upgrade infrastructure facilities of rural hospitals, while organizing biennial blood donation camps.
The year 2017 marked a significant milestone in North Sails’ legacy of generosity and community service, where our employees’ collective response made a significant impact in the community. More than 1,000 employees and their families got together with the company to donate a much needed ultra sound scanner worth LKR 7.5 million to the “APEKSHA Hospital” (National Cancer Hospital) of Maharagama. Our employees volunteered their time for this project without hesitation to achieve this noble course.
