The quality of life in a dozen towns and villages across Sri Lanka is looking up after the Brandix group accelerated its ‘model village’ programme in 2016 to help communities around its factories with their water supply and sanitation needs. Brandix completed multiple projects at schools, hospitals, places of worship, police stations and a community centre during the year, committing more resources and time to a project that is at the heart of the group’s community relations agenda. The first Brandix Model Village programme launched in 2015 benefitted residents of Polonnaruwa, while the second programme conducted in the same year covered communities in Nivithigala.
