One of the fastest-growing financial institutions in the country, Kanrich Finance’s impactful CSR project ‘Kanrich Thaksalawa’ has been going from strength to strength in its aim to develop future leaders. The different initiatives taken via this project has assisted Kanrich Finance in many ways to pave the way for a brighter future for 400 underprivileged children. This initiative was developed with a goal of providing children of underprivileged customers free English classes to learn and improve English skills.

As part of this project, qualified teachers are hired by the company to teach students from various levels with a goal of bringing them up to the desired standards. Each student’s standard or level is closely evaluated via the extension of tests and examinations. Students also receive training to improve communication and presentation skills. This free service is currently provided to students starting from the 6th grade and is continued until the student passes the 10th grade, thereby building a strong relationship with each student to help them achieve their potential.

The project has had a great impact through the improvement of the language in terms of speaking, reading and writing skills, thereby displaying an enhancement across an overall literacy of the English language. In addition, increasing of examination results to an average of 75% has also been a highlight of the Kanrich Thaksalawa programme.

Kanrich Thaksalawa has ambitious plans for the future including debates, short story and essay competitions among the study centers to create healthy competition among students. The students will also be exposed to role plays and other training activities from which they will receive invaluable feedback relating to their performance. This is expected to generate greater opportunities for students to enhance speaking skills.

Kanrich also has plans to provide learning opportunities for a further 1800 children via the implementation of 50 study centers across the country within the year 2017. Further, in incorporating a sense of innovation, Kanrich also has ideas in the provision of a mobile library to the students in view of further improving their reading and understanding skills effectively. The ultimate goal of this project is to create One Million future leaders from the rural community by 2025.
