Sadaharitha Plantations Ltd, the pioneer in the green investment sector and the leader in commercial forestry in Sri Lanka launched a Facebook campaign titled ‘Grantakalpana’ to highlight the significance of September – the literary month.
The campaign took place throughout the month of September, fostering reading practices amongst the young and adult Facebook users in the country. Users were offered the opportunity of participating in the contest by posting their novels on their profiles and pages, making them eligible to win valuable prizes.
The Covid 19 pandemic has affected the lives of not just Sri Lankans, but also the lives of people from around the World. The people have been affected in terms of health, education, work and overall by the larger economic and social crisis that has unfolded several challenges of its own.
Sadaharitha, the Sri Lankan brand in the global agarwood market, taking the current atmosphere into account, launched this campaign to develop the mental health of the people; from children to adults with the focus of empowering the community. This was implemented as an initiative aligning to its corporate social responsibility.
Starting off in early September, the company launched a video highlighting the importance of reading, creating awareness and attraction towards it while spotlighting the impact and effect it has on creativity, critical thinking, knowledge and emotional intelligence. Following this, a competition was announced allowing participants to post their novels and books of choice on the comments section of the post dedicated to Reading Month. Participants who had liked the page liked the post and shared the post were eligible for the weekly prize rounds.
