The initiative is almost a year old now but the effort to empower its winners has never lost momentum. A group of passionate, dedicated people behind the Anchor and MBC teams, many of whom have been involved from the very beginning, engage continuously to monitor the success of the children and plan for the next steps in their journey.
Dinith Pathirana, Anchor Brand Manager, Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka said at the event, “Abiman Varam aims to provide these students with opportunities to showcase their talents and achieve their dreams.”
“We keep track of the students’ progress and continuously support them. Providing them with this simple technology and connectivity was a small and humble initiative that we hope will be a source for them to gain knowledge, supporting them on their journey.”
Nikesh Ranasinghe, the winner for the innovation category expressed his thoughts, “With the laptop I received today, I can expand my knowledge and research through the internet for more innovations. My only dream is to become an engineer, develop these innovations for the country and then introduce them to the world.”
