People

The Bogawantalawa Tea Estates family extends not just to our team and their families, but to the Ceylon Tea plantation communities around us as well. An inherent part of our ethos, we look to uplift the lives and livelihood of people through meaningful projects that have a long lasting impact. To meet this end we also partner with local grassroots and government organisations as well as NGOs.

We also support the Lanka Mother & Child Support Foundation, an NGO initially established in 2005 by our parent company Metrocorp and other business partners to help those affected by the devastating Tsunami of 2004.

Today, the focus and scope of this foundation have grown to encompass all mothers and children affected by poverty and lack of resourses, with a special emphasis on tea plantation communities and those who are differently-abled. Through continual and sustained initiatives focusing on education, medical assistance, nutrition and community awareness, we hope to keep making a difference in people’s lives.
