Samsung Engineering seeks to improve conditions around the world through our social contribution programs. Company-wide, we utilize our strengths and resources to benefit local communities and help children and families in need. Individually, our employees are encouraged to take part in the many volunteer programs offered by the company.
Working in cooperation with our project sites and regional offices around the world, Samsung Engineering ensures that our corporate social responsibilities are fulfilled everywhere we do business. These global CSR efforts include, but are not limited to, providing financial support to children from low-income families, training and employing people from local communities, building schools for children who do not have access to education, and building communal facilities.
BUILDING LIBRARIES Children ought to have a clean, safe, well-lit environment in which to learn, but for many communities around the world, the resources necessary to make that happen are simply too scarce. Realizing this need, Samsung Engineering has been transforming neglected schools and community centers into children's libraries at sites all around the world, including India, Iraq, Uzbekistan, Bolivia, etc. The project, which began in 2012, has become a huge success, and since 2014, it has been combined with the scholarship and Eco-Generation program, environmental education for children, in order to contribute to the development of local community.
BOOK DONATION With library buildings being refurbished all around the world, the next task for Samsung Engineering was to fill those libraries with books, so we run a parallel program through which we donate books in the names of guests who visit Samsung Engineering's corporate promotion center located at the head office in Seoul. By building libraries and filling them with books, we can invest in the future.
TECHNICAL SCHOOL Samsung Engineering will begin building technical schools near some of our major project sites in order to train local men and women in basic technical skills, such as welding and carpentry. After the schools are built, we will then offer employment opportunities to graduates. By providing people with the skills to earn a living, creating jobs where they are needed, and securing a global network of qualified human resources, Samsung Engineering is able to benefit the communities we work in while strengthening our corporate standing in the region.
