DFCC Bank clinched two merit awards at the annual awards ceremony of the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific, presented at the 43rd ADFIAP Annual Meeting held virtually due to the pandemic, recently.

DFCC Bank clinched two merit accolades under the Outstanding Development Project Awards. The first one was under Category, Human Capital Development, for its project “Together We Grow”, as well as another under Category, Corporate Social Responsibility, for its project, “Samata English”.

The ADFIAP Awards Program was initiated in 1997 when ADFIAP hosted the “Summit on Development Finance” in Manila, which has since become a permanent ‘fixture’ in the association calendar.

The ADFIAP “Outstanding Development Project Awards” recognizes and honours member-institutes which have undertaken and/or assisted projects that have created a development impact in their respective countries. DFCC Bank CEO Lakshman Silva said, “The ‘Samata English’ program has now ensured that a wide array of students enter their desired job markets equipped with enhanced speaking skills and confidence.

Similarly, the ‘Together We Grow’ concept promotes development of the highest standard within the DFCC workforce, which inadvertently builds a positive work culture that gives employees the pride to be a part of DFCC Bank.
