Asiana gives equipment to China primary school
The ceremony celebrating the connection between Asiana and the Shiyang Primary School was attended by Asiana Airlines President and CEO Yoon Young-doo; Chung Man-young, Korean consul general to Chengdu; Yan Shu Sheng, vice inspector of the Foreign Affairs Office at Chengdu; and Wang Min, deputy mayor of Dujiangyan.
The affiliate of Kumho Asiana Group said it built a volleyball court and donated sports equipment, a piano and books to upgrade the school’s educational environment. Asiana is also conducting a vocational program for students who wish to become flight attendants.
“We are proud to fulfill our responsibility as a global air carrier and invest in the future of China by supporting the students of Chengdu,” said Yoon. “We will put our best effort forward to lift the status of Korea and make society better by consistently performing social contributions.”
“Beautiful Classroom” has been one of the most recognizable social contribution projects for Asiana, which has worked with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (Koica) since March 2012.
