LNG Japan and RasGas Joint CSR Programme
LNG Japan is an active contributor to the educational and social development programmes (education, health and medical research, environment and urban development, sport, arts and culture, etc.) envisaged by the Qatar National Vision 2030.
Since 2007 LNG Japan has made annual charitable contributions to various organisations in Qatar as part of RasGas Company Limited’ (RasGas) Sunduk Al Kheir Charity Fund annual Charity Gala Dinner.
Over its nine editions, the Fund has contributed to a number of worthy causes, among which are Shafallah Centre for Special Needs, Qatar Society for the Rehabilitation of Special Needs, Qatar Social and Cultural Centre for the Blind, Sheikh Thani Bin Abdulla Foundation, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care, Qatar National Cancer Society and the Social Development Centre.
In order to further contribute to the Qatar National Vision 2030, LNG Japan, together with RasGas, has made a five-year commitment to financially support the construction of the Training Center for Early Childhood Teachers, Qatar University’s new education facility. The new building, which will cover an area of more than 5,000 square meters, is designed to meet international environmental and renewable energy standards (GSAS- 4 star rating).
The Center will provide training for early childhood education professionals as well as research opportunities to further enhance knowledge of early development, education and quality care for young children. It will also serve as parents’ hub by hosting workshops and educational counseling.
The project underlines the close link LNG Japan enjoys with its industrial partners and the commitment to support education in Qatar.
The new Training Center will help professionals charged with the important role of educating the younger generation to further develop their skills and make a lasting contribution to the sustainable development of the country.
