Samsung Electronics Presents Hope to Youths in Ghana
The middle-and-elementary school in Ga West hasn’t been in the best of conditions. Having no walls in the facilities but only rusty roofs perched up on the crumbling poles, the building itself represents the tough circumstances encountering African youths.
Within this school, a total of 734 students were forced to learn in just three class rooms, meaning they had no choice but to cram themselves into such crowded and narrow rooms.
So on July 5th, Samsung and World Vision (link: http://www.worldvision.org/, http://www.worldvision.or.kr/eng/index.asp) inked a deal to build a “School of Hope” in Ghana in a part of implementing outreach programs for the underprivileged children around the globe.
The project in Ghana, conceived to offer message of “hope” to the children in poor areas, aims to modernize the educational environment by renovating the previous schools and equipping the new ones with cutting-edge digital infrastructure like ICT (Information and Communications Technology).
Samsung Electronics employees chipped in their parts to fund this project, in hopes of inspiring the children of Ghana to dream of a brighter, smarter, and more global future.
The beneficiaries of the School of Hope project will find their schools undergo transformative changes, and every year an average of one school is to be established in Ghana.
“I express my gratitude to Samsung Electronics for their benevolence towards the people in a remote area of Ghana. The ICT courses in the newly built facilities will open more doors for these children”
– J. Sam Park, Executive Director, World Vision Korea
