As part of extending its value to a wider community, Seylan Bank launched its seasonal campaign, which focused on spreading the Christmas joy to all Sri Lankans, in December 2018.
Through this promotion, Seylan Bank donated a share on behalf of its customers, for every transaction carried out by its Credit & Debit Cardholders.
The Bank culminated the season by handing over the donation of Rs. 1million to SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka (SOSCVSL) which will be utilised for the betterment of the SOS Villages in the country.
In addition to the donation, Seylan Bank is also providing internship opportunities to 6 children from SOSCVSL.
These children will be groomed on financial literacy and social values related to the financial industry.
With a strong focus to nourish Children’s minds with quality education, Seylan Bank embarked on the Pahasara initiative in 2013.
The Pahasara Initiative focuses on revamping / building new libraries in underprivileged schools.
Over the years, Seylan Pahasara has built and revamped over 180 libraries.
In addition, Seylan Tikiri, the minor savings account of the Bank, has also introduced many industry first novelties, which has encouraged kids with the habit of saving whilst also inculcated good social values.
The Bank will continue to support the SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka.
