Guided by its wide-reaching sustainability strategy, DFCC Bank continues its Samata English, "English for Everyone," social support and development programme for the 5th consecutive year, which is the Bank's flagship project under the "Education" pillar, one of the 6 cross-cutting themes under the Bank's sustainability vision, contributing towards resilient communities.
This year, the ongoing programmes will also empower a broad spectrum of youth aged 18-25 who have completed the GCE Advanced Level Examination in the Hambantota, Trincomalee and Nuwara Eliya Districts through the promotion and development of English language and soft skills.
Over the past years, from 2017 to 2021, DFCC Bank's Samata English programme has directly benefited over 350 young people across the Island in Gampaha, Kalutara, Kandy, Kurunegala, Galle, Ampara, Rathnapura, Polonnaruwa, Jaffna, Badulla, Anuradhapura and Vavuniya. This programme is part of DFCC Bank's long-term sustainability strategy and focuses on one of its core pillars, Developing Resilient Communities.
