Over 1,000 students in central Quang Ngai province will have the opportunity to interact with a group of students from Chung Ang University in South Korea between January 11 and 18, to help the local students develop creative thinking skills and experience Korean art and culture.

Doosan Vina’s sixth annual Education CSR program will take place at three districts in Quang Ngai - Binh Son, Mo Duc and Son Ha - under a cooperation arrangement between Doosan Vina and Chung Ang University.

The volunteer group of 32 students from Chung Ang University and 13 volunteers from Doosan Vina and the Da Nang Foreign Language University will teach creative thinking skills through origami, balloon modelling, and pottery to 1,053 students at the three primary schools of Binh Khuong, Thach Thang, and Son Thanh, as well as Binh Thuan Secondary School.

The group will also improve the environment at the relic site of the Binh Hoa Massacre and help two elderly households in Binh Thuan village with cleaning and painting and also present them with gifts.

The Chung Ang University students will also present teachers and students at the schools with a series of Korean performances such as K-Pop, Taekwondo, and folk dance.

The total estimated budget for this year’s program is $17,000.

Education is one of the three key CSR programs, together with Medical and Housing, that Doosan Vina and Chung Ang University have focused on in Vietnam for the past eleven years. Skills development activities like this have gone through a five-year journey and over 5,000 students in Quang Ngai province have benefited.

Doosan Vina is a high-tech industrial complex at the Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai employing 2,000 Vietnamese and supplying the mega infrastructure products that make modern life a reality.

Products include boilers for thermal power plants, desalination plants the size of a football pitch that turn sea water into fresh, material handling systems like cranes that are the heart of logistics at ports around the world, and structural steel for buildings and infrastructure developments. To date the company has exported products worth $2.4 billion.
