Providing a brighter future for their children is one of their key priorities. They have established the Growrite English and IT Academy to achieve this goal. Over 350 children are enrolled annually, and all facilities are provided by Tropicoir at no cost to them.Their objective is to provide an opportunity for the children to grow up as global citizens broadening their scope for success in life.
Contributing to the nation’s drive to preserve this vital crop (Coconut) and the natural environment, they have embarked on a project to grow 100,000 coconut trees. They have engaged the team members and a broader section of our communities to achieve this task. The objective of this program is to boost the country's depleting coconut tree population and utilize the amazing carbon sequestration capacity of coconut trees to compensate for the loss of forest cover. They have engaged children in this initiative in a unique way to inculcate the habit of tree planting in them and to provide an opportunity to grow up as environmentally responsible citizens. Through this project “Anagathaya Wawamu Kapruka Rekaganimu” they have successfully planted over 30,000 coconut trees up to now.
