Porsche Korea (Holger Gerrmann, CEO of Porsche Korea Ltd.) announced that in addition to the existing support for financially disadvantaged children talented in arts or sports, it will help children no longer subject to social care, on their path to become self-reliant.
This year, Porsche Korea doubled the amount of support fund and scope of support, including increasing project scale to 200 million KRW, and has expanded the number of beneficiaries by about four times than before, through selecting a total of 39 scholarship students.
In particular, from this year, the ‘Porsche Dream Up’ beneficiaries will be expanded to support children no longer subject to care who have left child care facilities to take their first steps in society independently. This year, 25 children no longer subject to care were selected, and will be supported in acquiring professional qualifications in fields such as architecture, hospitality, arts and crafts.
The existing Dream Up program, which supports the dreams of children talented in arts or sports, will expand the scope of support to new arts and sports fields such as Ajaeng, Trombone, Ski Biathlon, and Short Track to provide systematic support measures to improve their skills.
On the 28th, the ‘Porsche Dream Up’ scholarship awards ceremony was held at the headquarters of the ChildFund Korea, a social welfare corporation located in Mugyo-dong, Seoul. On this day, Porsche Korea CEO Holger Gerrmann, ChildFund Korea President Lee Je-hoon, and Dream-up beneficiary students and parents attended the event to support the Dream Up talent training and dreams of children, as well as deliver scholarships and scholarship certificates. In addition, a viola performance by a ‘Porsche Dream Up’ scholarship student took place, adding to the awards ceremony.
CEO of Porsche Korea Holger Gerrmann stated, “The talented students of ‘Porsche Dream Up’ are individuals with dreams that also inspire the dreams of others. Porsche Korea is very happy that we can be a small part of their life’s journey and to give our support for students striving to achieve their dreams in various fields including sports and arts.”
‘Porsche Dream Up,’ a project that is part of Porsche Korea's social contribution campaign ‘Por-sche Do Dream,’ has been annually supporting the dreams of children talented in arts or sports since 2018, and has established itself as the brand’s representative program for the cultivation of future leaders.
Meanwhile, Porsche Korea launched the ‘Porsche Do Dream’ Campaign in 2017 and has contin-uously carried out social contribution activities that reflect the values of ‘dream’ and ‘passion’ that Porsche pursues. In addition to the 'Porsche Dream Up' Program, it supports building indoor gymnasiums through 'Porsche Dream Playground'. Last year, 'Porsche Dream Circle' was newly introduced, creating forest environments in schools and installing solar panels. Porsche Korea contributed a total of 2.63 billion KRW in donations through the 'Do Dream' campaign.
