"Sisu Dirimaga Foundation is a sustainable CSR platform as opposed to miscellaneous one-off projects that lack long term objectives. The Sisu Dirimaga programme will ensure that all the projects will stem from one key platform, establishing a clear CSR identity for Fashion Bug as a responsible Corporate Citizen, as well as give our customers the satisfaction of being part of a noble national cause. This was initiated by Shabier Subian - Director of Fashion Bug. Under his guidance and support, we will be continuing for the betterment of the school children."

The drinking water project that completed and presented to the Ovitigamuwa Maha Vidyalaya today, is by far the most important project initiated by Fashion Bug. Students of the school are determined performers in spite of their difficult circumstances. They have been drinking water with high levels of iron for the past several years. Water that was deemed unsuitable for human consumption by Public Health Inspectors and continued usage would result in long term health adversities.
Fashion Bug Sisu Dirimaga Foundation installed a tube well and a system that distributes pure drinking water throughout the school through a filter system, fulfilling the dire need for pure drinking water
" We reached many organisations that visited us and noted down the school’s shortcomings but never really did anything about it. Fashion Bug responded to our request within a week and two weeks later we were presented with the computer lab. The students are very excited as they haven’t seen a computer in their lives before"
