We believe strongly that if a company is doing well, it has both a moral and ethical duty to share that created wealth with the community.
It’s about “Creating Shared Value”. We win and the community wins.
And this benevolent philosophy is embedded in everything we do amongst our corporate family. Our mutual goals are set to aim for a healthier future for our companies, the community and our planet.
Light a Candle – 2019
Prudential Shipping rallied its CSV efforts to aid and donate to the ‘Light A Candle – 2019” project organized by the Hand to Hand charity community by providing nearly 50 students at the Namalgama Prathamika Vidyalaya in Polonnaruwa with school bags as part of an overall goal of tending to their stationery requirements for the academic year of 2020. This endeavour successfully achieved its goal of bringing joy to the young inquisitive students of the school as well as their hard working parents.
Movember – Changing the face of giving
Over the course of November, the selfless and generous men of Prudential Shipping and Helanka Vacations took on their roles of ‘Mo Bros’, growing and grooming their moustaches throughout the month to raise funds for a donation to the Shilpa Child Development Home by becoming walking billboards as many outsiders would inquire as to why they were growing their moustache. However, this event wasn’t just for men, the women of both companies or ‘Mo Sistas’ showcased their unwavered support towards the men in their lives by raising awareness, signing them up and doing all a Mo Bro would do, except without the Mo.
Prudential Shipping and Helanka Vacations donated a sum to the Shilpa Child Development Home for each Mo Bro who participated, thus engaging and motivating all in the the true essence of Movember. The total donation were made from donations both internally and from the gracious contributions of the company’s friends and families.
The Resolute Christmas Market
Prudential Shipping and Helanka Vacations once again joined together to kick-start the Christmas season with a burst of spirit. In our very own premises, a Christmas Market was held! With the aim of Empowering and Enriching the ambitious entrepreneurs of the cottage industry, over 15 stalls were brought together for no fee under one roof to make the event a great success. With Christmas music chiming in the background, glimmering decorations engulfing the venue and a vast array of quality products such as apparel, jewellery, food, decorations and plants layering the stalls, Creating Shared Value truly displayed its virtue here.
CSV at the Sobitha Vidyalaya – Rajagiriya
In recent years, Prudential Shipping has made it a point to provide numerous items to the students of the nearby Sobitha Vidyalaya. From a school wide donation of shoes and bags to gifts such as a laptop for the top batch performers, we at Prudential Shipping are more than grateful to have brought joy to the young students here.
Christmas Party for the Children of Maw Sevana and Newbridge
During the December of 2017, we at Prudential Shipping put together a Christmas Party filled with games and gifts for over 30 children from Maw Sevana – Mattakuliya and Newbridge – Nittabuwa. Held within our very own festively decorated auditorium, numerous events were put together such as games, a dancing session, Christmas gift giving and even a special appearance from Santa Claus himself! Helanka Vacations aided in the logistics and preparation segment of the event collectively allowing for a great success visible through the happiness of the young children from the two homes.
ICU Trolley at the General Hospital
Upon the notice of the request from the General Hospital of Sri Lanka for an ICU trolley, Prudential Shipping took the initiative to provide for this alongside a donation of other trolleys for the betterment of the hospital and its patients.
Education based Sponsorships
Through the continuous sponsoring of various Sri Lankan students from primary school to university, we at Prudential Shipping have enhanced our outlook towards ‘Creating Shared Value’ by playing a part in ensuring a better tomorrow through the youth of today as said by the inspirational Nelson Mandela ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’.
