MAS Linea Aqua awards educational scholarships

MAS Linea Aqua recently awarded nine academic scholarships to children of company employees.

Ceremonially termed the ‘Linea Aqua Scholarship Program,’ this initiative focuses on the enrichment of the lives of employees and their families through financial assistance channelled towards education.

This is a Linea Aqua initiative inspired by the ‘MAS Women Go Beyond’ program created by the MAS Holdings Group to support Career Advancement, Reward Excellence and launch Work-Life balance initiatives targeting female employees.

MAS Linea Aqua is one of the world’s leading swimwear manufacturers and its current position on the global map is testament to the commitment of the 1500 predominantly female employees who have steered the company from strength to strength.

The nine students (seen in the picture) who met the eligibility criteria were the children of female machine operators who attend schools in Gampaha, Hanwella, Veyangoda and Colombo. The official distribution of scholarships took place in Kapugoda, at Linea Aqua, under the auspices of the plant’s executive committee and in the presence of fellow employees.

Principals and teachers from respective schools were also present to lend support to the program which will be held on an annual basis to aid prospective academic achievers.
