LG Electronics Bangladesh, the multinational electronics company has provided financial support to three young social welfare organizations, who are working to bring positive changes in different areas of the country. They were also recognized as ‘LG Ambassadors’ for their willingness and struggle to work for welfare of the people.
The donations and recognition were made given at an event held today (Tuesday), December 5, 2017 at Best Western La Vinci Hotel, in Karwan Bazar, Dhaka.
The recognized organizations are- Batch 97 in Nabinagar, B.baria; Suborno Alo Public Library in Noakhali and Tarunner Ogrodut in Chandpur Sadar.
Many young people want to work to solve different types of problems existed in their societies at different corners of the country. They took many initiatives and struggled hard. But due to lack of financial assistance, their dream or initiatives can’t be fulfilled. The ‘LG Ambassador Project’ was adopted to inspire young people who wants to be a partner of social change and to help them implementing their dreams. 237 project proposals have been submitted from June to September, 2017 through a campaign conducted on “LG Bangladesh” Facebook page. These three organizations were selected from those proposals by considering sustainability of the projects and organizations’ efficiency for implementation.
Edward Kim, Managing Director of LG Electronics Bangladesh said as a chief guest at the program, “Youth power is a powerful tool for bringing changes. Young people of Bangladesh are very enthusiastic. They are playing an active role in solving the problems of the society. Some Bangladeshi young men and women have already got success and recognition for their contribution. But many dreams and initiatives can’t be implemented due to lack of financial capacity. LG wants to be the partner to fulfill such dreams.”
He said, “we are working to make people’s lives easier and comfortable by improving technological development and innovation in product services. LG believes in the spirit of ‘Life’s Good’. Today we are delighted to provide financial assistance to these three youth organizations who are working for the socioeconomic development of their respective areas. We hope, LG's support and recognition will accelerate their way of going ahead.”
