The Anderson Flats Housing Scheme is home to around 800 families with over 1000 children. During an employee volunteerism project conducted by the Shared Services Team of the National Development Bank PLC, it was observed that the Scheme’s Playground was in a dilapidated state and in need of repair. Therefore, the Bank undertook this as a CSR Project and renovated the children’s park, replacing a number of equipment in the playground, and refurbishing it for the children.
The renovated children’s ground and the newly refurbished, modernized grounds were handed over to the children and their families for their leisure activities following a workshop and a celebration conducted by NDB.
The opening included a special progamme combining entertainment and education for children with the presence of NDB’s Pancha Mama. “Pancha Mama” – a famous character from the children’s show “Tikiri Peya” spent the day with the children, teaching them the joys of saving with fun games and activities.
