(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –Seylan Bank, the Bank with a Heart, began celebrating a month dedicated for children coinciding with World Children’s Day with “Tikiri World Children’s Month” 8 years ago, marking the beginning of a special journey for children. “Tikiri World Children’s Month” stands out as the longest-running program in the financial services industry of Sri Lanka. Since its inception, thousands of children have joined in the festivities throughout the month from around the island.
Seylan Bank proactively introduced digital solutions for customer needs when the country first went into an islandwide lockdown and ‘Seylan Tikiri’ became an active digital platform for its young customers during travel restrictions. Preparations are in full swing to celebrate Children’s Month this year as the Bank is set out to carry exciting digital competitions through its social media channels to empower and reward Tikiri Achievers for showcasing their many talents while improving their academic and self-development skills.
Our children have been compelled to follow online education, away from their schools and extra-curricular activities for nearly two years due to the pandemic. The need for a specialised process to relieve their young minds of the stress they are constantly under is felt very strongly. Team Seylan understood this and introduced a wide array of digital activities such as ‘Tikiri Lockdown Diary’, ‘Tikiri Digital Avurudu’, ‘Tikiri Vesak Pathuma’, ‘Tikiri Champ’, ‘Storytelling’ and many others to keep the spirits of their little customers high and excited during these difficult times.
Seylan Tikiri is the number one Children’s Savings Account in the market and has always worked towards recognizing children’s talents through promotional programs while supporting them to develop their skills. Keeping true to this; this year, throughout the month of October, Seylan Bank has made all necessary arrangements to host a special digital tournament through their social media channels. The tournament will include fancy dress competitions, drawing competitions and many others with the winners set to receive valuable monetary rewards. Their talents will be on display on Seylan Bank’s social media channels. Parents and well-wishers are invited to witness and encourage the children and be a part of their journey.
This year, as a value addition to the little account holders, Seylan Bank will be handing out special ‘data gifts’ for children who make Seylan Tikiri deposits during the “Tikiri World Children’s Month”. Accordingly, data packages will be gifted to those who deposit Rs. 15,000 in an existing or newly opened Seylan Tikiri Children’s Savings Account during this month. Throughout the year Seylan Bank plans to bring forth many entertaining digital programs for their youngest customers.
