Asiana Airlines held a completion ceremony for the "2019 Vietnam-Beautiful Classroom" in Hanoi, Vietnam on Nov. 26.
Asiana Airlines' management director Ahn Byung-suk and the Hai Duong Province People's Committee's vice chairman, Consulate General Jung Woo-jin of the Korean Embassy in Vietnam, KOICA's Vietnamese office head Kim Jin-oh, and Good People's Vice Chairman Gyeong Wook-hyun attended the event.
A total of 72 students completed their courses this year, marking the fifth anniversary of the Asiana Airlines' job-support program, which is being carried out with the KOICA and the non-profit organization Good People to help low-income Vietnamese women advance into society. During the period from 2015 to this year, some 500 students finished the program.
From June to November this year, these students studied curricular courses linked to employment, including Korean language, English, computer, and accounting at the University of Hai Duong Province in Hanoi, while receiving working-level training on business manner and image-making based on services from incumbent cabin staff and airport service teachers.
In the past four years, 208 women have succeeded in working at Korean companies, health centers, elementary schools and large discount stores in Vietnam.
"We are proud that the Vietnam-Beautiful Classroom project is becoming a valuable foundation for the future of Vietnamese women," said Ahn in a congratulatory speech, adding, "We urge you to make continuous efforts to realize your dreams and contribute to the community as a member of society."
