Pursuing its commitment to uplifting the standards of education in the country, DFCC Bank counts education as a key pillar in its CSR initiatives. In fact, DFCC Bank has actively supported education over the years through various initiatives. In keeping with this, the bank conducted an English education programme, ‘Samata English,’ as a pilot project in the Gampaha and Kalutara areas, targeting youth between the ages of 16-22 earlier this year. The main objective of the ‘Samata English’ project was to teach spoken English and equip youth with the basic English knowledge required to enter the workforce.
