Out of Darkness

Out of the Darkness is a CSR initiative carried out by the Oxford College of Business together with the OCB Alumni. Out of the darkness, is our bold attempt to give to those who cannot afford what we have ourselves. An “education”.  Because we believe education is not just every child's right, but every human being's right.

We aim to identify under-privileged children in extremely rural areas a chance to change their future through education. By offering light to their humble dwellings and making an island-wide difference to their lives, which will inspire these children to study under more comfortable living conditions because we believe knowledge offers to a child's future, what no other opportunity can.

Providing solar-powered lighting to homes is not a novel idea in Sri Lanka but illumination of the houses for the benefit of the students of the under-privileged families to study and enrich their lives, is an innovative idea created through the brainstorming of the OCB CSR committee.
