The presentations were made by Chairperson of Abans Group, Mrs. Aban Pestonjee, at a ceremony recently at Abans Main Showroom in Kollupitiya.

Earlier Abans presented 50 Laptops each in the first and second stages of the project. Understanding the importance that computers provide in today's world, in education and in enhancing the knowledge of students, Abans took up the challenge as a CSR initiative to provide laptops to deserving students.

Abans offered Laptops to student's islandwide in the age group 14-21 years. The students had to write to Abans describing how the laptop would help them in their education.

From the numerous applications received, up to date 65 deserving students have been selected and presented with laptops. Abans hopes to present laptops to many more students in the future in stages.

Very few students in Sri Lanka have the privilege of on-line access to various educational information which seriously affects their ability to improve their knowledge of information and technology skills. Abans having realised the implications of this digital divide have made a genuinely heartfelt move by launching 'From Your Laptop to Their Future' to empower bright young minds.
