Korean Air has again donated computers and school
supplies to the National Centre for Lifelong Education in
The donation is part of Korean Air’s bid
to bridge the digital divide that local students face in Baganuur,
Mongolia, where the “Korean Air Forest” is located.
In 2013, Korean
Air started supporting local educational institutions in Baganuur,
by donating computers to selected public schools each year.
The Baganuur National Centre for Lifelong
Education was founded in 1997 to provide local residents with
computer education. The ages of students range from 12 to 60.
Korean Air donated 20 computers to the centre, and 10 to 10 public
kindergartens in Baganuur, providing educational opportunities to
Mongolians and improving their access to rapidly advancing
Korean Air’s relationship with the region goes
back to 2004, when the airline began planting trees. A section of
the barren Mongolian desert has now turned into a 44ha (440,000m2)
forest with around 120,000 trees - the “Korean Air Forest”.
Korean Air employees often participate in
volunteer work for the local community. Employees at Korean Air
Ulaanbaatar office visit an orphanage in Baganuur every year to
deliver donations, and Inha University Hospital of Hanjin Group
has been participating in medical volunteer work for the
underprivileged in Mongolia.
