Doo Group today announced its philanthropic collaboration with UNICEF Hong Kong to support UNICEF’s Schools for Asia initiative, in order to reach out to the most vulnerable children in 11 Asian countries, and provide them with a chance to learn in an ultimate conducive learning environment.
As an innovative Fintech corporation, Doo Group always believe in the power of knowledge and technology.
“Technology gives a great impact in every aspect of our lives. We believe that technology can help to provide a better solution in regard to the education systems in marginalized regions. We also believe that everyone should play their part in children’s charity and public welfare undertakings,” says Regional Director for Asia-Pacific of Doo Group, Marc Grand.
The noble partnership is part of Doo Group’s one of the many endeavours and activities to come, in contributing to the development of individuals, industries, as well as societies.
Empowering Education, Transforming Hopeful Future Generation
During crises, threats, and emergencies, children’s education are often among the first services to be suspended, and among the last to be restored. However, our partner, UNICEF, believes that every child should have the rights to a quality education, and learning opportunities, regardless of their localities.
Therefore, UNICEF has been active with the “School for Asia” initiative since 2012. With it, over 48 million marginalized children across Asia – including China, India, Vietnam, Philippines and Laos – are granted the lifetime opportunity to attend school and thusly build a better future for the communities, as well as their respective countries.
Despite the challenges of man-made and natural disasters and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF has shown adaptability and ingenuity by using new technologies.
Following the new national programme in school – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) – UNICEF incorporates interactive online learning classes and other digital approaches to the children.
According to UNICEF’s Schools for Asia Annual report 2020, in Vietnam, for example, UNICEF introduced Augmented and Virtual Reality education solutions in the country’s remote mountainous provinces. In Bhutan, almost 180,000 school-aged children including those in hard-to-reach areas were able to continue learning through online and remote learning programmes via television and Google classrooms, all thanks to UNICEF’s effort.
Doo Group Continuously Upholds Social Responsibility
It is Doo Group’s earnest hope that with the donation, it would help UNICEF to achieve its mission in helping those in need in the long run.
Looking ahead, we call out to everyone – regardless of who or where they are – to lend a helping hand, and to help spread awareness. That goes without saying, we will effortlessly contribute our assistance to those in need.
