Our Social And Business Philosophy
At the end of the 2009 civil war in Sri Lanka, there were over 40000 women-led households in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Sivan Arul Products was started in 2012 with the sole objective of providing employment for widows and disabled persons affected by the war.
Our key objective is to economically empower those affected and uplift their lives through the creation jobs. As far as we are concerned, the economic empowerment of the widows is extremely crucial as the loss of the sole breadwinner of the families often leads to socio-economic problems.
The profits earned through our social enterprise are re-invested to further develop our business operations and create more employment. We seek to engage, employ and empower our beneficiaries, for them to live independent and dignified lives.
To be a Model Social Enterprise in Sri Lanka with growth, sustainability and accountability.
To building positive hopes, creating employments and uplifting livelihood of women headed families and disabled persons and providing educational support for their children through generating profits from healthy, tasty and quality food products as a fair business with delighted stakeholders.
