Making a Difference: Korean Air Donates More Computers and School Supplies in Mongolia

Korean Air has again donated computers and school supplies to the National Centre for Lifelong Education in Baganuur, Mongolia.

 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 technologies.

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.
