This year, CCES has engaged in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR ) to assist a Sri Lankan family to build a new home. We have held various fundraising functions throughout the year including curry lunches, curry dinners, and garage sales. Over the course of the last eight months, we have managed to raise a total of $4600 AUD, which is the amount required to complete a house.

The fundraising functions and efforts were organized by Associate Professor Stephen Muller and his family. The house was completed in August, and was named “CCES Nivasa” (Nivasa means home in Sinhala).

Stephen and the team at CCES are happy to have been able to make a much needed contributed to a family who will now have better living conditions.
