Korean Air recently partnered with Thailand’s Channel 3, one of
the top broadcast stations in Thailand, on a corporate social
responsibility (CSR) project to renovate the Watsuthasinee
Elementary School in Kanchanaburi Province.
Volunteers from the Korean Air
Thailand office, Ms. Patchanee Jarujinda, the Executive Producer
and the main cast from Channel 3’s drama “Nak Su Tevda”, together
with more than 100 students and teachers painted the walls of the
school’s buildings in a visit on Monday. The guests also enjoyed
playing sports with the students, after donating sports equipment
and kitchenware to the school.
The CSR program, jointly
funded by Korean Air and Channel 3, started in July with
renovation of the school’s playground, walkway, dormitory and
facilities currently underway.
Elementary School, located at Bong Ti in Saiyok, Kanchanaburi, Thailand, is under the Royal Initiative project which
was organized by King Bhumibol and Princess Sirindhorn in 1980.
The project aims to provide basic education, basic equipment and
an environment for teaching and learning, to improve the quality
of life of children living in remote border areas of Thailand.
“We have participated in various corporate social
responsibility initiatives in the past and each year we take pride
in giving back to the communities where we operate, at home and
abroad. This year, we are delighted to partner with Channel 3 from
Thailand, which is influential within the community, for this
meaningful campaign,” said a spokesperson for Korean Air. “We are delighted to
support the students in Thailand by improving their learning
environment, which also demonstrates our commitment to support the
underprivileged in different communities.”
