AJU Happy Global Village
AJU Happy Global Village is a global social contribution activity that supports children and young people in countries with poor educational environments, so that they can dream and open a happier future. Each year, AJU's volunteer tem, consisting of more than 20 executives and employees each year, supports activities to improve the educational environment of children and youth in Southeast Asia. In particular, in cooperation with the Vietnamese and Cambodian governments, we are delivering dreams and hopes to children through various activities such as renovation of school facilities, opening of libraries, planting fruit trees, digging wells, and painting old exterior walls.
Originating in Jungnang District in Seoul, AJU donated the land around Gureungsan in Sinnae-dong on two occasions in 2013 and 2015 for regional development and 1 billion won in 2016 for the park construction fund. The park was named after the penname of the founder Tae Shik Moon (Cheongnam), and the place with the lack of proper hiking trails but with illegal facilities was rebuilt as “children’s space for nature experience” and “resting and healing space for the residents.”
AJU HOTELS & RESORTS / AJU IB INVESTMENT
We have been sponsoring the “Seoul Spring Chamber Music Festival,” a classical music festival representing Seoul, for eight years. In addition, we have been supporting the violinist Lim Ji-young, who won first place in the world-renowned “Queen Elisabeth Competition” every month since 2016. In the future, we will continue to carry out Mecenat activities that support funds and facilities for cultural and artistic activities.
Green product development and environmental certification
To prepare for the future, we are conducting research and developing technologies that recycle by-products from steel and power plants, and have received the green technology certification for PHC pile manufacturing technology that recycled slow-cooling blast furnace slag.
