Under the philosophy of “dedication to national economic development and respect for people,” Samsung C&T hopes to contribute to communities, both at home and abroad.

Trading & Investment Group of Samsung C&T operates a broad range of programs for children from multicultural families to help them become confident members of Korean society, filled with hopes and dreams.
Such programs have been designated as key social contribution activities of the Trading & Investment Group.
The company has entered into an agreement with Pearl S. Buck International Korea, the only organization in the country that supports multicultural children,
and jointly runs scholarship programs for multicultural children and programs to raise public awareness on multicultural families as well as programs in which employees can participate.

The company also grants monthly scholarships to multicultural children from the low-income bracket, and sponsors and supplies volunteers for a wide variety of programs for multicultural children.
We hope our efforts can contribute to raising public awareness on multicultural families.
