[Sponsored Report] Asiana gives back to Chinese kids


Asiana has a sisterhood agreement with Wuchang Experimental Primary School.

Asiana Airlines works hard to give back to its destination cities. In collaboration with the Korea International Cooperation Agency, the company has given Chinese children in primary and middle schools access to better educational facilities.

Wuchang Experimental Primary School became the fourth school of the year to establish a sisterhood agreement with the airline. President and CEO Yoon Young-doo went to the school in Harbin, northeastern China, on Wednesday and celebrated the new ties with the deputy mayor and deputy consul general of Shenyang. The carrier provides facilities like computers, LED screens and more. Since the school has opened an affiliate kindergarten for younger children between ages 5 and 7, Asiana also built an indoor playground.

As the Chinese government has managed an education support system for children in poverty since 1989, the company participated in the goodwill project by setting up sisterhood agreements with schools and offering substantial help. Last year, it reached out to selected schools in seven cities across the country from Xi’an to Yantai and Nanjing to Changchun. For the year, the company donated 7,000 books, 320 computers and additional materials depending on individual needs. Some participating institutions are Korean-Chinese schools. The airline is the largest Korean carrier flying to China, with 22 cities served by 31 flight routes. It plans to add seven schools every year and aims to cover all Chinese cities served by flights.
