Korea donating to schools

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in South Africa, with the support of Korean businesses operated in South Africa, has been committed to serve community of a Primary school which is located in Bela-Bela, Limpopo.

The CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program is initiated by the Korean Embassy with the intention of encouraging Korean companies to participate in community service in South Africa. As the CSR activity is the major topic in South Africa, the Embassy strive their best to emphasize the importance of the idea of giving back to the community to Korean companies in South Africa. This is why the Korean Embassy has built strong ties with the Albert Luthuli Primary school by donating various items in accordance with their needs since 2012.

This year the Counsellor at the Korean Embassy, Mr Hee-soo Dan and local Korean businessmen visited Albert Luthuli Primary school to improve students’ study environment and make the teaching environment efficient for teachers. With those objectives in mind, we decided to donate pens, chalks and laptops.

The Korean volunteers who were part of this moment had a precious time with the principal and council members in the Primary school.

The co-operative relationship between Korea and South Africa is growing rapidly. Trade volumes between the two countries totaled $4.4bn in 2013. Korea exports motor vehicles, electronics and chemical products to South Africa, which in turn, exports mineral resources (gold, platinum, iron ore) to Korea.
