The beneficiaries for the sponsorship are Incheon Yonghyunnam Elementary School Jawol Branch and Incheon Nambu Elementary School Ijak Branch. As part of Ørsted’s continued active engagement and communication with the Incheon residents, it decided to provide educational equipment to help students learn new skills and access knowledge.
Ørsted, the global leader in offshore wind, chose the sponsorship items in close consultation with each principal of the branch schools to help students develop their creativity and reach their full potential through extracurricular classes. As a result, it prepared carpentry learning tools and materials kit for the Jawol Branch School, as well as a digital piano and eight tablet PCs for the Ijak Branch School.
The sponsorship ceremonies to deliver the items to the Jawol Branch School and Ijak Branch School were held on April 19 and 20, respectively. Representatives of Ørsted including Seung-ho Choe, country manager for Ørsted Korea, spent meaningful time discussing future opportunities for the sponsorship with school officials and encouraging the students who attended the ceremonies.
Seung-Ho Choe, Country Manager of Ørsted Korea, said that “Children are at the heart of the future vision for local communities, and we are happy to support a favorable learning environment to help children reach their full potential," and added, "Based on our efforts to strengthen bonds with local communities in Incheon, we plan to continue investing in the local area and creating opportunities for economic growth."
Meanwhile, Ørsted contributed KRW 30 million in sponsorship last month to the Deokjeok High School baseball team in Deokjeokdo, Ongjin County, Incheon Metropolitan City, as part of its ongoing efforts to promote mutual growth with the Incheon local communities. The contribution will be used to finance necessary expenses for the team's off-season training and participation in the national tournament.
