GRI empowering communities and enabling change

In line with constant efforts to uplift and empower stakeholders within the natural rubber industry in Sri Lanka, GRI conducted programs to empower women and motivate children under its GREEN X CIRCLE initiative. These holistic endeavors aimed to address the diverse needs of the community, focusing on both women empowerment and youth motivation.

GRI recently organized a comprehensive training program titled “Management of household finance under current economic conditions” at the Ingiriya Rubber Collecting Center in Sri Lanka, led by Ms. Shashika Nimali, an NLP Practitioner and Life Coach. The initiative provided women in the industry with essential skills and knowledge to effectively manage household finances, a dire need in today’s context. Recognizing the pivotal role women play in household economics, GRI’s tailored training sessions equipped participants with tools for informed decision-making, ultimately fostering greater financial security and independence.

Simultaneously, GRI extended its support to the younger generation of rubber farmers through a motivational program emphasizing the “Importance of Education and Disciplines of Students.” Held in Monaragala, Sri Lanka, with the event featuring Mr. Ajith Jayawardena, a renowned motivational speaker, who inspired students to embrace education as a pathway to personal and societal advancement. By instilling the values of diligence, perseverance, and responsibility, GRI aimed to sow the seeds for a brighter future not only for the students but also for the broader community of natural rubber farmers.

Dr. Mahesha Ranasoma, CEO of GRI, reiterated the company’s commitment to nurturing and empowering stakeholders within the natural rubber industry. “Our GREEN X CIRCLE initiative embodies our dedication to sustainable development and community empowerment,” stated Dr. Ranasoma. “By recognizing the importance of both women and students, we aim to build a stronger bond with the natural rubber farming community, fostering a culture of growth, resilience, and prosperity.”

These efforts underscore GRI’s holistic approach to corporate social responsibility with the GREEN X CIRCLE, demonstrating a commitment to sustainable business practices and meaningful community engagement. As GRI continues to strengthen its ties with stakeholders across the value chain, it remains steadfast in its mission to drive positive change and create lasting impact within the natural rubber industry.
