Samsung Extend Partnership with Generations For Peace
By iSportconnect | June 17, 2014
Global technology giant Samsung and Generations For Peace have renewed their regional partnership for a seventh year.
Generations For Peace is the only peace-through-sport organisation recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), erectile and are based in Jordan.
The support is part of Samsung’s broader “Hope For Children” programme, a globally-respected Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.
Mr. Bumsuk Hong, President of Samsung Electronic Levant said: “Seven years is a momentous occasion! And it is a true testament of the solid partnership we have built together with Generation For Peace.
“It is also verification of a commitment we at Samsung Electronics take pride in, which solidifies our pledge and continuous pursuit to help in building a better and healthier future for generations to come.”
Samsung’s support is benefitting Generations for Peace programmes in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine, empowering volunteers to address local issues of conflict and violence in their own communities.
HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, IOC member and the Founder and Chairman of Generations For Peace, commented: “Samsung is our longest-serving partner, and their support is a wonderful example of an IOC TOP Partner supporting our work at a regional level, in communities, schools and universities, using sport to transform conflict and empower children, youth, and teachers.
“We are also using Samsung’s technology to benefit our programmes in schools and universities. Samsung and Generations For Peace are combining our passion and expertise together, to inspire the world and create a better future.”
