A group of volunteers from Samsung in Seoul visited Mexico in order to provide new tools for schools located in rural communities.
The Mexican division of South Korean electronics giant Samsung has set up new classrooms in rural communities in Mexico, in a joint effort with state governments, in order to put technology within reach of these areas’ inhabitants.
During an interview with Mexican daily El Sol de Mexico, Lourdes Herrera Moro, the corporate manager of government relations and social responsibility of Samsung Mexico, announced that 36 employees of the company in South Korea have provided free professional services in various schools and hospitals throughout the country, with the aim of supporting education in Mexico.
The city of Merida, Yucatan, hosted the international volunteer program for Samsung employees 2015 (EVP), which took place from August 16 to 21, and served to cover specific needs of different communities.
This year, the community of Chocholá, in the state of Yucatan was selected from among many others, to become the beneficiary of this social responsibility program, which channels the conviction and talent of Samsung employees, who traveled from Seoul to Mexico for the first time to meet with regional specialists.
Activities included the installation of a Digital Classroom Samsung Smart School Solution at a local high school in Chocholá, which included the donation of 30 tablets, a PC, a Touch panel, perpetual licenses, a Blu-ray player, a multifunction printer, a charger cart and two air conditioners.
The purpose of these classes and this program is to help develop the teaching-learning process so far known in the country, in order to encourage cooperation in class, giving students the necessary tools for their growth.
In the future, this program is expected to reach more rural communities in Mexico in order to improve the education of many more students.
