BNP Paribas hosted a special event for 200 children and their families supported by the Korea Association of the Community Child Centre (KACCC) by inviting them to ‘The Treasure Island’, a children’s musical, performed at the Gwangjin Cultural Art Hall in Seoul on 17 December 2016.
This event was organised as part of BNP Paribas’ CSR initiative ‘Artists’ Outing’ programme which aims at providing underprivileged children with cultural experience to nurture their creativity and artistic senses since 2013.
Philippe Noirot, Country Head for BNP Paribas South Korea, said: “BNP Paribas is strongly committed to give back to the local communities and we hope our small gift to the children and their families give them a memorable celebration in the festive season. BNP Paribas is fully dedicated to sponsoring the art and education activities for the next generations and we will continue our contribution to support the children in need.”
BNP Paribas has been in partnership with KACCC, a non-profit organisation helping approximately 2,000 community child centres nationwide, to help children with underprivileged backgrounds since 2014. Under the partnership, BNP Paribas actively supports children through various programmes including a kitchen renovation programme ‘Stepping Stones’, an afterschool activities programme ‘Wide Horizons’ and a cultural education programme ‘Dream Up by BNP Paribas’.
