Sirio does massive CSR program...

Sirio, a leading garment manufacturing and exporting company in Badalgama engaged in a massive CSR program. The company in a single day visited 28 Children’s and Elders’ homes in the Western and North Western provinces to provide the inmates with their requirements and entertainment.

Following the opening of its newest factory in Mullaitivu, the Hirdaramani Group is also actively implementing its CSR and sustainability programs in the region. Fully-owned and operated by the Hirdaramani Group, the factory is the 21st facility in the company’s island-wide network, and the 35th facility in its global portfolio. The new factory provides hundreds of people with employment, and the company has also invested in a local school and training centre, which will play a crucial role in supporting the social and economic development of the area. As part of its commitment to support the local community, the Hirdaramani Group rebuilt a local school in the area – the Puthukkudiyiruppu Roman Catholic Vidyalaya. Hirdaramani’s Special Project team led by Hudson Wewalage and Aasiri Ediriweera successfully completed the project in March 2015 with the assistance of the school staff and members of the community. A total of five new classrooms were constructed, the new school building was equipped with new furniture and improvements were made to the sanitation system. The completely refurbished school has been handed over to the community, and at present 440 students are enrolled in classes which run from Grade 1 to Grade 11. Commenting on the project, the Principal of Puthukkudiyiruppu Roman Catholic Vidyalaya, stated: “Due to the state of our school premises, it was challenging for us to offer the children of our community, a high quality education. However the upgraded school building and facilities have given us renewed hope.
