Over 7,600 children of Associates of the Brandix family ushered in the new school year on a positive note, receiving gifts of stationery, a school bag each and other school essentials from Brandix, under the company’s employee welfare initiative, ‘Ran Daru Thilina.’

Launched in 2016, ‘Ran Daru Thilina’ benefits children from nursery to Grade 5, each receiving a pack containing a school bag, exercise books, drawing books, colouring and standard pencils, rulers, glue, and other essentials, required for his or her academic year. The younger children were gifted with modelling clay, scissors and crayons.

This year, children of 4,971 Brandix Associates employed at 22 manufacturing locations around Sri Lanka were the beneficiaries of this initiative, which has proven to be a source of relief to the employees.

Additionally, Brandix has a scholarship scheme titled ‘Ran Daru Scholarships’, under which financial assistance is extended to Grade 5 students of Associates.

“While the beginning of a school year is an exciting time for children, it is also a period during which parents experience financial constraints.

By presenting school essentials to our Associates’ children, our aim is to alleviate the burden of any additional expenses that could impact their overall quality of life during this time,” said Anusha Alles, Head of CSR and Corporate Communications of the Brandix Group.

“Our employees are the backbone of our enterprise, and the Brandix ‘Ran Daru Thilina’ initiative is demonstrative of our commitment to take care of our own, at all times.”

Families from across the country, including Batticaloa, Giritale, Polonnaruwa, Nivithigala, Koggala, Rambukkana, Kahawatte, and Pannala, benefitted from the Brandix ‘Ran Daru Thilina’ program this year.

A similar program is also implemented by Brandix Apparel India, located within the Brandix India Apparel City in Andhra Pradesh.
