HCM CITY (VNS) — Following the success of the "Samsung Smart Library" campaign, Samsung Vina Electronics, in coordination with the General Science Library of HCM City, has introduced phase 2 of the project "Smart Library 2.0", called Learning Commons.
This is one of several activities within Samsung's Corporate Citizenship project.
With the belief that youth are the future of society, Samsung gives priority to educational programmes that contribute to development of a better life.
Globally, the Corporate Citizenship programme Samsung Hope for Children, launched in 2011, has brought about learning, leadership training and healthcare opportunities for thousands of children.
In Viet Nam, in September 2011, Samsung began deploying the Smart Library campaign, which has contributed 50 upgraded school libraries, 200,000 books, and 300 computers, tablets, TVs and DVDs for 50,000 high school students across the country.
"Learning Commons" was launched to fulfill the need of Vietnamese youth to have convenient, inspiring spaces for learning and exchange of knowledge.
Smart Library 2.0 is a cooperation programme between Samsung and its partner the General Science Library of HCM City.
Under this programme, Samsung supports libraries with infrastructure improvement, technological device financing, and implementation of knowledge exchange activities.
"With the cooperation and support of Samsung, we hope to create a convenient place for knowledge exchange, and organise new activities that are in line with current trends and interests of young generations," Bui Xuan Duc, chairman of GSL, said on Tuesday.
"We appreciate the talent of Vietnamese youth as well as Vietnamese values," said Kim Cheol Gi, CEO of Samsung Vina Electronics. "We hope to bring about a playground for you to share ideas and knowledge so that your treasured values spread further."
Learning Commons programme is expected to be put into operation in October. — VNS
