As part of the activities to mark the Samsung Annual Employee Volunteer Programme, a team of Samsung Electronics employees are in Kinshasa, DRC to help refurbish classrooms at the Dibua Dia Ditumba Primary School and conduct training for 30 teachers and up to 50 learners.
The initiative will focus on providing access to technology by installing computers at the school, giving the learners and teachers basic computer skills, and painting the classrooms, to give it a fresh-new look.
Bill Kim, Managing Director of the DRC branch, Samsung Electronics East Africa, said: “The engagement model has been warmly welcomed in communities across Africa. Because programmes are implemented in consultation with communities and are designed to meet their felt needs, they develop a sense of ownership of the projects.”
The week-long initiative (27- 30 July) is in partnership with Action de Development Communautaire Dibua (ADCD) and Better World.
