Sampath Bank receives Silver award

Sampath Bank received the Silver award under the category CSR Brand of the Year at the SLIM Brand Excellence Award ceremony held recently at the exhibition centre of the BMICH.

The award recognised Sampath Bank's continuous CSR initiatives that have contributed towards the enhancement of the lives of people and to overall social well-being.

Deputy General Manager, Marketing and Business Development, Sampath Bank, Tharaka Ranwala said, "The country today is going through a phase of rapid economic and social development.

As a socially responsible corporate citizen, Sampath Bank has identified the need to empower the lives of Sri Lankans and has thus engaged in a number of CSR initiatives.

"Under a comprehensive framework known as the '5E CSR Model' Sampath Bank has been successful in the accurate identification and improving the livelihoods of various communities.

The SampathSaviya CSR project aims at empowering SMEs which are essentially the backbone of our economy," he said.

"This CSR project mirrored our aspiration and commitment to CSR at SLIM Brand Excellence 2014. We are indeed proud that our constant investment in social improvement has been recognised on such a prestigious platform and are motivated to continue our efforts to make Sri Lanka a more developed nation," Ranwala said.

SampathSaviya is an ongoing entrepreneur development program that seeks to empower 500 small and medium scale entrepreneurs across the island.

Through a series of three-day workshops, it educates and trains them in important areas such as human resource management, administration, business planning and enhancing financial literacy.
