MAS Eco Go Beyond, a strategic CR initiative of MAS Holdings commenced in August 2006. 'Mihikathage Daruwo', a flagship initiative of this programme is a sustainable development education project aimed at introducing the concept and creating understanding of applicability to youth as tomorrow's leaders. The first phase of this programme which was successfully concluded in October 2007 was conducted in 20 schools across 5 communities in which MAS business units operate, namely Horana, Agalawatte, Hanwella, Pannala and Kuliyapitiya.

Phase two of the project sees an additional 10 schools coming on board from the 3 communities of Avissawella, Thulhiriya and Kandy bringing the total to 30 schools this year.

The launch of phase two took place with a meeting at the Ministry of Education, Isurupaya for the principals and teachers of the participant schools. The meeting was held under the support of Mrs. Sandya Wijebandara, Additional Secretary to the Ministry of Education.

The event's proceedings included a very insightful talk on sustainable development by the programme consultant who highlighted the timely need for this topic in education. Mrs. Sandya Wijebandara, reiterated the Ministry's support and endorsement of the project.

The Principal of the champion school of phase 1 Mr. J S Chandasena of Walagedara Maha Vidyalaya, , shared his experiences in conducting this programme last year and commended MAS Holdings for making this programme available to rural schools. Further to the in-school workshops, dedicated teams will work on projects which will enable application of the knowledge gained.
