February 25 – In support of its “Hope For Children” programme, Samsun Electronics Levant Co., ltd. renewed its partnership agreement with Generations For Peace for a sixth year. The organisations’ renewed affiliation exhibits the shared values at the heart of the relationship and builds upon the success of joint events and activities in the region.

“Since 2008, Samsung’s partnership with Generations For Peace has been founded on Samsung’s belief that the sustainability of our business demands that we be respected global corporate citizens,” President of Samsung Electronics Levant Bumsuk Hong said. “We have been pursuing sustainable social development in the belief that businesses need a healthy society, free from conflict and violence, in order to prosper, just as trees require good soil to grow.

“Over recent years we have been expanding our corporate social responsibility initiatives globally. Our support for Generations For Peace fits within Samsung’s ‘Hope For Children’ programme. We are extremely impressed with the growth and achievements of Generations For Peace over the last five years, and the demonstrated impact in promoting youth leadership, community empowerment, active tolerance and responsible citizenship.

“Last October, it was my great honour to present, with His Royal Highness Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the Samsung Generations For Peace Awards to Generations For Peace volunteers. I am so impressed with the inspiring work of the Generations For Peace volunteers around the world. I believe the extraordinary quality of Generations For Peace training is matched only by their passion and commitment to cascade the values of Generations For Peace to make a lasting difference in their communities. Their work is important and an inspiration to others, and we are proud to support Generations For Peace.”

Samsung will again support the Generations For Peace Advanced Training in April, which brings 30 of the most experienced volunteers together for advanced-level training and to share success stories and best practices.

“Both Samsung and Generations For Peace share a focus on innovation, quality, impact and sustainability,” CEO of Generations For Peace Mark Clark said. “We are both seeking to push the boundaries of what is possible, to harness new technologies and social media, to invest in research and innovation, to measure our achievements, and to keep learning.

“Without Samsung’s support we could not achieve the impact we are having. Both Samsung and Generations For Peace are bringing our passion and expertise to inspire the world and create a better future.”
