A group of 114 volunteers from Samsung Electronics is offering educational and cultural activities in the northern province of Bac Ninh and Hanoi.

In collaboration with Global Civic Sharing (GCS) and local authorities, 82 Samsung Electronics Vietnam staff members are organising workshops on Information Technologies for 150 students and teachers in Thuy Hoa (Bac Ninh).

Furthermore, the volunteers will also help build smoke free outdoor kitchens, which are adapted specifically to Vietnam’s climate, for two kindergartens.

This marks the continuation of the “Nanum Village” project, which Samsung Electronics and the People’s Committee of Thuy Hoa have been working on since October 2013.

In Gia Lam ( Hanoi ), 32 employees at Samsung Electronics’ South Korean headquarters have partnered with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the National Economic Technical College (NETC) to arrange IT classes, build an online learning centre, and host cross-cultural events.

Samsung’s Employee Volunteer programmes were launched throughout 2014 in Vietnam, India, Malawi, Brazil, Uzbekistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The programmes in Vietnam will end on August 30.-VNA
