Library Projects 

 

The KPMG Foundation, along with the KPMG Alumni Association recently constructed libraries in the Ramanathapuram Government Tamil Mix School in Killinochchi and the Vattappalai  Maha Vidyalayam Mixed School in Mullaitivu, providing library facilities and other stationery items to students.

 

The libraries opened in Killinochchi and Mullaitivu, were constructed with assistance from the non-profit organization “The foundation of Goodness” and are aimed at providing greater access to education to students in need of extended learning opportunities.

 

Commenting on the projects, Suren Rajakarier, Partner for Alumni and Sustainability stated “Corporate Social Responsibility is part of the culture of KPMG and is part of our values and our business strategy. The funds for the libraries were collected in a unique manner. All proceeds of the alumni get together themed “A Million Reasons to Meet” and the collections made through a raffle draw conducted at the Alumni get together in 2011 were donated to these library projects. I thank KPMG Sri Lanka’s Alumni for their support towards our initiatives. We intend to expand the KPMG Library Project program by extending further support to other schools in the coming year”.
