[Sponsored Report] Hyundai E&C gives help in Myanmar, Bangladesh

Ever since Hyundai Engineering & Construction (E&C) was incorporated into Hyundai Motor Group in April 2011, the company has been carrying out social contribution projects around the globe.

Hyundai E&C is currently promoting 27 projects overseas in 15 countries. Among them, 18 are being conducted in eight countries across the Middle East and Asia.

Hyundai E&C, in cooperation with the Miral Welfare Foundation, held the “Hope light for Myanmar” event in Hlaing Thaya, Myanmar, on April 1 this year. The company delivered 1,500 solar lanterns to children involved in Future Stars, an educational institution established by Global Vision.

Many of those children came from homes with no electricity, so the solar lanterns allow them to study after dark in pursuit of their hopes and dreams.

Hyundai E&C also carried out a construction project to enlarge Senpara Parbata Public Elementary School in Dhaka, Bangladesh, with Plan Korea. Construction was completed this year on March 28.

After the project, Senpara Parbata Public Elementary School was able to easily accommodate over 1,000 students, and it soon plans to establish a more effective management system to improve education quality.

Hyundai E&C, which recently advanced into new markets in Latin America and Africa, is operating nine social contribution projects in seven countries across the regions.

One of them is the enlargement of Nakyaka Elementary School with Plan Korea in Kamuli, Uganda, a project that was completed on March 17.

Hyundai E&C plans to provide not only learning support and health education for students of Nakyaka Elementary School but also educational support for the teachers and seminars for parents about child care.
