KT&G Social Welfare Foundation (KT&G SWF) announced on October 31 that it has built a classroom building at the Zayar Shietaung Monastry School located outside Yangon, Myanmar.
The Zayar Shietaung Temple School, located 30 kilometers from Yangon, Myanmar, is an educational institution with 947 students from kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school.
The KT&G SWF demolished the old classroom and built 15 new classrooms from last October to recently, as it was threatened with the safety of students.
In addition, the government has spent 400 million won to improve the aging educational environment, including changing materials for students' education such as blackboard, desks and vendors.
"We hope the project will help foster human resources and help them achieve their economic independence," said an official at KT&G SWF. "I will actively participate in social contribution activities not only in Korea but also in overseas countries."
Meanwhile, KT&G Welfare Foundation is conducting social contribution activities not only in Myanmar but also in Cambodia and Mongolia.
