CSR - Not an Activity but a Lifestyle

Responsibility at the Heart – Adamjee Lukmanjee Memorial Fund

Staff at Adamjees take enormous satisfaction in working as a unified team in lightening the lives of lesser privileged children in the country by means of donating scholarships on their higher education. Each and every staff member has eagerly obtained the membership of Adamjee Lukmanjee Memorial Fund (ALMF) incorporated in 1996. Starting from the office aid to the Managing Director cheerfully contributes to this worthy cause where already over 300 lesser privileged children have been presented with scholarships. We at Adamjees take pride, when children once wallowed in the misery of poverty visit us and share their joy as doctors, engineers and other respected professionals. We strongly believe that each and every one of us is responsible for the lives of our fellow countrymen and ALMF is something that drives us forward when we are faced with turbulences in life.



Education

  • Upgrade and Maintain the Library of Elabadagama School, Pannala - July 2018

    INTRODUCTION

    Being a responsible corporate citizen, ALG and its subsidiaries devote a portion of its profits to fund its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives annually as a means of giving back to the society it operates in. ALG believes that investment in education forms the basis for uplifting communities out of poverty and fostering growth based on social justice. These include annual scholarship schemes for deserving students and infrastructure development for schools serving underprivileged communities.

    In keeping with this, ALX has initiated its CSR project for the financial year (FY) 2018/2019 to renovate, upgrade and maintain the library of Elabadagama School, utilizing its annual CSR budget as well as utilizing employee time reserved for employee engagement activities. This project has been selected by the ALX team after visiting several schools in its vicinity and evaluating the most deserving entity to whom the benefits of the CSR project will be most impactful.

    Located in the immediate vicinity of ALX's Pannala factory, Elabadagama School currently has 425 children enrolled. It has classes from Year 1 to Year 11 preparing students to face the Year 5 scholarship exam and GCE (Ordinary Level) exam.
