SLT and MoE strengthen "Children-Parent" communication through "Sisu-Connect" (1314)


Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), the National ICT Solutions Provider together with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Telecommunications & Information Technology launched "Sisu-Connect", an especially architected virtual telephone platform to bridge the much-needed "Children-Parent" communication gap that occurs when children are away from their parents. The "Sisu-Connect" communication service was launched under the patronage of Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, Minister of Telecommunications & Information Technology and Bandula Gunawardena, Minister of Education at a special ceremony held at the Ministry of Education

SLT "Sisu-Connect" virtual telephone service for students has been especially designed as one of the Corporate Responsibility initiatives of the Company for the year 2014 to protect the country’s future generation even when they are physically away from their parents. Parents are naturally uncomfortable and concerned when their children are away at school or tution classes etc. The SLT team has put in a great effort to implement this hassle free communication system for both children and parents. Unlike a child using any other communication device, SLT’s "Sisu-Connect" telephone system creates a better environment for students to connect with their parents or guardians in the most secure and easy to access manner, and also enables them to enjoy crystal clear voice quality communications.

SLT has already started the process of installing these special telephone units inside the school premises or education institutes selected by the MoE under the 1st phase of "Sisu-Connect" program. Further, the company has plans to expand this system to other schools and education institutes around the country in the near future with the guidance of both the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Telecommunications & IT.

The most special feature of this "Sisu-Connect" telephone platform is that students do not need cash to operate the telephone and get in touch with their parents / guardians so it is a ‘Cash-less’ telephone service provided by SLT for students. A unique and simple PIN number will be given to students upon registering for the service after which they can access the "Sisu-Connect" IVR system. Upon the press of a single key which has been pre-assigned at the time of registering, the child can dial any fixed or mobile numbers that has already been assigned by the parent / guardian. Up to 4 numbers can be programmed including both fixed and mobile phones of father, mother, home, office, school van etc.
