Ceylinco Life helps two schools in Trincomalee

Two schools in Trincomalee district have been assisted by Life Insurance Leader Ceylinco Life under the company’s Schools Development Programme. The company has built a new building for the Deepthi Preschool in Tissapura, Kantale and has completed construction of school library building for the Sinhala Maha Vidayalaya Trincomalee, in a demonstration of empathy with needy communities, the company said. “It was very satisfying for us to help these two schools which needed urgent assistance,” Ceylinco Life Deputy Chairman R. Renganathan said.

“It is moving to see how even a relatively small intervention can have a life-changing impact in rural areas.” Established in 1981 the Deepthi preschool provides education for 31 Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim children at present. Its classes have been conducted at the Dharmashalawa of the Sri Agbo Temple. The preschool now has a 400 square foot new building built by Ceylinco Life at a cost of Rs.400,000, providing its little students a better environment to start their initial education.

The Sinhala Maha Vidyalaya situated on Inner Habour road, Trincomalee is the main national school in Trincomalee. The school which provides education for nearly 1,500 students did not have a proper library.

Construction of a library commenced a few years ago and was abandoned due to a lack of funds. Following the request made by the school to Ceylinco Life, the company completed the work on the 600 square foot library building at a cost of Rs.500,000 and handed it over to the school recently.
