Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
We grow with the Community!
Lak Cinnamon is always willing to lend a helping hand to the local community that has contributed to our success.
As a responsible exporter in Sri Lanka, the responsibilities associated with our efforts are a main consideration along our journey. Even in our day-to- ay operations, we make an attempt to give back to the community. For example, we employ unemployed persons in the area to assist with basic processing so that we may increase our success steps while also providing them a chance to improve their lives.
Projects We Have Done
Beyond everyday business operations, the Lak Cinnamon team consistently strives to go above and beyond when it comes to giving back to the community. These are some memorable projects that we have completed successfully over the years.
Water Supply for a
We found some local villages that were having difficulty finding drinking water. They had to walk for miles to find drinking water for their daily needs. As a responsible export company, we are taking the appropriate steps to address this situation. We first devised a few options, and then we chose the best ones after consulting with the villagers. Then, in various locations across the village, we built driven wells. According to them, it was a huge relief for their burning drinking water problem.
Crops Donation for
As a cinnamon exporter, we have a strong responsibility to develop local cinnamon industry, which would make a significant contribution to both the local and national economies. Based on that, we devised a plan to support local cinnamon farmers in improving their production by providing thousands of free high-quality cinnamon crops. This enabled them to get more revenue from their cultivations. We believe that this project will have a long-term impact on the local economy.
Bringing Electracity to Rural Villages
Electricity is becoming a basic human need. However, some rural villages grabbed our attention since they lacked access to electricity. There were schoolchildren, self-employed persons, farmers, and many more people who desperately needed electricity to light up their life. Our team took the required steps to provide all financial assistance. We also persuaded and worked with the Ceylon Electricity Board to take the steps needed to supply electricity to these areas. Finally, we had the opportunity to lighten so many people’s lives, which was a dream come true for them.
Giving Essential Goods
We are continually fighting to eliminate poverty in the country. To that end, we are supporting local communities through multimodal projects. We discovered some families who were struggling to meet their basic necessities for a variety of reasons. Our team at Lak Cinnamon took action by providing them with essential goods. Our intention was to be a source of strength during their difficult times, and we were able to keep them going until they were ready to handle their lives on their own.
