Virtusa supports schools in Gampaha

Virtusa Corporation, a global information technology (IT) services company that provides IT consulting, technology implementation and application outsourcing services through an enhanced global delivery model, facilitated setting up IT laboratories for the children of Halpe Ekanayake Kanishta Vidyalaya, Dorowwa Maha Vidyalaya and Mirigama Dudley Senanayaka Aadarsha Maha Vidyala as a part of their CSR initiative "Digital Reach". The project is aligned with Virtusa's sustainable strategic plan and represents the company's investment to help improve the quality of the IT industry and bridge the gap of digital illiteracy in Sri Lanka. The company provides schools with computer laboratories as well as necessary textbooks and material.

In addition, Virtusa offers training for selected teachers, which will not only help further their studies but also benefit the future of Sri Lanka. Farzana Khan, Manager - Marketing and Corporate Communications Virtusa Corporation, said, "As part of our Digital Reach Initiative, we are glad to set up these IT labs.

This effort will help drive interest and curiosity amongst school age children and further their interest in IT.

There are many career opportunities in the IT industry and we hope that the schools will use this opportunity to encourage students into careers in IT".

A training session will be held during the lab initiation, where the students will receive a basic introduction to Office application.

Virtusa Digital Reach aims to promote digital literacy through access to Information Technology and help build a more digitally-inclusive society thereby improving the quality of life in the communities in which the company operates.
