Education (Educational Support for Future Generations)
Matching grant by employee participation
Doosan Corporation raises charity funds jointly with its employees based on its matching grant initiative. It runs a scholarship project called “Youth Start!” and the “Single Mom’s Future” program, which is designed to help single mothers become independent, based on selection by a Fund Committee composed of employees. Through the Youth Start scholarship program, the fund provided KRW 100 million worth of scholarships to 32 students from low-income family, thus allowing them to continue with their university education. Employees participate in the screening process for scholarship and provide support for their continued growth through various exchange such as volunteer activities and book mentoring. As a program aimed at helping single mothers to become independent, “Single Mom’s Future” assisted 164 single or unmarried mothers who raise children and their groups with employment, vocational training, and emergency living allowances. In addition, it provided counseling and monitoring services courtesy of single mom mentoring activists during the education period.
