New class unit for Kanthale school
With the motive of creating a better study environment for children,
Fashion Bug, one of Sri Lanka's leading retail clothing chains with over
16 outlets island-wide, recently took the initiative to construct a
separate class unit for Kanthale-based Al-Tharique Junior School.
As part of the company's continuous CSR activities, the project was
completed and handed over to the principal of the school A.P.A Jawahir
and representing on behalf of Fashion Bug were S M Faham- Assistant
Marketing Manager and RiyasShahabdeen- Senior Manager and OshadaEragoda-
Providing the right environment to study is of vital to any school.
Unfortunately many of them in the rural parts of the country have been
neglected for a long time. This type of initiative sets an example of
how private organizations and institutions can help contribute
effectively even in smaller ways. It does mean the world to children and
we feel obliged to be responsible socially,' said Shabier Subian,
Director- Fashion Bug. 'We look forward to carry out similar initiatives
in the future.
Fashion Bug spends over Rs. 20 million annually on various CSR
projects that are carried out island-wide, ranging from sports and
education through to public services and beyond. Most recent ones
include scholarships, island-wide career guidance programmes,
refurbishing post offices and hospitals,schools, amongst many others
said Dr.S.H.MFaraaz- Deputy GM, Fashion Bug.
Fashion Bug commenced its operations since 1994 as a partnership
business with 4 partners and a staff population of just 15, and today it
possesses over 16 stores throughout the country with a workforce of over
1250 employees, and stands among the leading clothing stores in Sri
Lanka catering with the fashion motto of 'changing lifestyles'.
