Allianz Insurance Lanka Limited (Allianz Lanka), one of the fastest growing insurance service providers in Sri Lanka, recently carried out a solar installation project at a rural school in Warawewa, uplifting the facilities for education and overall quality of life of the students in the community. This is the company’s first sustainability initiative for 2021and is in line with the group’s Climate Change and Decarbonization Strategy of encouraging solutions for tomorrow’s climate.
Following a stringent selection process, the Market Management team picked NW / Maho / Giribawa Hettiearachchigam Primary School in Warawewa as the school with the greatest need for this solar installation. The school now has a solar panel with a capacity of 3kWh (a 7 solar panel unit) which provides its complete electricity requirements. In addition to this, some essential equipment and stationery was donated to the school and students. Close to 50 children from farmer families between the grades of 1-5 and five teachers will benefit from this benevolent gestureby Allianz Lanka.
