Very few students in Sri Lanka have the privilege of on-line access to various educational information, which seriously affects their ability to improve their knowledge of information and technology skills. Computer knowledge stretches far beyond the student stage of one’s life. Basic IT knowledge and application is now a prerequisite for almost any job and a must to build a successful career. Abans believe that equipping talented students through their secondary and tertiary educational years will prepare them for what awaits them when they are ready to launch their careers.
Abans having realized the implications of this digital divide have made a genuinely heartfelt move by launching “From Your Laptop to Their Future” to empower bright young minds who will be the future leaders of our nation. Understanding the importance that computers provide in today’s world, in education and in enhancing the knowledge of students, Abans were very concerned about providing IT facilities to under privileged students and took up the challenge as a CSR initiative, to provide Laptops to deserving students. This is the fifth occasion on which Abans have presented free Laptops to students as a part of their continuous CSR initiative “From Your Laptop to Their Future”.
A laptop donation drive of such a magnitude has never before been carried out by a single corporate entity in Sri Lanka. Rather than limiting the donation to a few educational institutes, this initiative of Abans will benefit students from all over the island.
