Korean Air donates computers to schools in Mongolia to bridge the digital divide

September 9, 2019 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

On September 4, Korean Air held a donation ceremony at a public school in Baganuur, Mongolia, after donating 30 sets of computers, desks and chairs, as well as physical education equipment such as racquets and volleyballs.

Korean Air held a donation ceremony on September 4 at a public school in Baganuur, Mongolia, after providing computers and school supplies as part of the annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity in the region.

The donation is part of Korean Air’s bid to bridge the digital divide that local students face in Baganuur, Mongolia, where “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. Since then, the airline has donated a total of 215 computers to five educational institutions.

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 125,000 trees. The Korean Air forest symbolizes the friendly relations between South Korea and Mongolia.

Korean Air employees actively 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.

As a leading global carrier, Korean Air will continuously support global volunteer activities in order to perform its corporate social responsibility as part of company’s initiatives to give back to society.
