[Sponsored Report] Hyundai E&C works to build a brighter future
Hyundai E&C is currently working on 27 projects in 15 countries.
Among them, 18 are being conducted 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 solar lanterns were delivered in order to improve the dark environment of houses made of soil commonly found in Myanmar, which have no electricity.
It was especially difficult for children in Myanmar to do their studies after the sun went down.
The solar lanterns allowed the children to study after dark to pursue 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.
Before construction, the elementary school suffered from a lack of classrooms, which made it difficult to provide education to students.
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 teachers and seminars for parents about child care.
Also, in Vietnam, Hyundai E&C established the Hyundai-Koica Dream Center in cooperation with Hyundai Motors Group, Koica and Plan Korea. The construction was completed in Feburary 2016.
This is the first time Hyundai Motors Group has collaborated with Hyundai E&C to establish the Hyundai-Koica Dream Center.
The center is an institution based on the Creating Shared Value model, focusing on the harmonization of economics and social values.
