Sampath Bank in keeping with its values to uplift the conditions of the needy, has teamed up with the Ministry of Finance and Planning to help underprivileged children in the Mawanella and Aranayaka areas.

The Bank presented over 1,000 Pubudu children’s savings accounts at ceremonies in these areas recently to launch the Ran Piyawara project, an initiative taken by the Ministry of Finance and Planning, to inculcate the savings habit among children.

The account holders were also rewarded with Sampath school bags as a special gift on the occasion.

The Sampath Pubudu savings scheme offers attractive interest rates, bonus interest and other rewards for young savers.

This is further complemented by the easy accessibility to their savings account through over 100 electronically linked branches islandwide.
