CIC Agri Businesses has established RUHUSEF - Rural Humanity Services Foundation, a non-profit organisation under which the company conducts CSR activities, with an emphasis on uplifting rural education.
An informative website in both Sinhala and Tamil (www.navagoviya.org) was developed and launched for rural farmers, as a tool for accessing basic agricultural knowledge. The site shares information on the cultivation of common crops, management practices and pest and disease control, among other topics.
The CIC Charitable and Educational Trust Fund supports the children of employees and other deserving children. The Fund presently focuses on supporting children who excel at the Grade 5 Scholarship Examination, the Ordinary Level Examination, and deserving undergraduates.
One of our most successful flagship projects within the CIC Group, the Dulux Child Protection Trust Fund (DCPTF) was launched in 2001 by Akzo Nobel Paints Lanka (Pvt) Limited to aid the prevention of child abuse. The DCPTF provides financial assistance to needy children and to institutions engaged in caring for abused children, while creating public awareness on the rights of children with the aim of eradicating child abuse in Sri Lanka. Parents and adults, including teachers and caregivers, are also educated on the dangers abused children may encounter and potential signs of abuse.
