At Cargills, we are proud to say that our business is corporate social responsibility. In everything we do, we strive to work for the betterment of our nation. Cargills Foundation was initiated to further our efforts by going beyond our business practices to reach citizens that would not necessarily be impacted by our products or services. We believe in strengthening Sri Lanka, through community development whilst investing in the future by means of educating our youth and our next generation. The Cargills Group strives to empower our people for a better tomorrow, as we firmly believe that without our country there will be no Cargills.
Through this program, Cargills provides children within the 3-5 year age demographic the opportunity to
enhance and develop their knowledge of the English language via exposure to the basic concepts in the fields
of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).
Over a two year period, the program will introduce the child to up to 19 thematic areas, ranging from colours and shapes, to nature and healthy habits, and address five major developmental skills:
Speech and Language Skills
Fine Motor Skills
Gross Motor Skills
Social and Emotional Skills
With the intention of improving the standards of preschools in Sri Lanka by utilising ‘blended learning’
methods, Cargills implements an education program developed by Calm Island (an education program development
company based in South Korea) which also gives an opportunity for preschool teachers to undergo their relevant training.
Cargills is currently in the pilot phase of the Early Childhood Education program which formally commenced in May 2019.
