YEONGCHEON, Sept. 23 (Korea Bizwire) – The Korea Army Academy at Yeongcheon announced that it will be launching a campaign called ‘Donation Reading, Donation Reader’, which contributes 10 won to savings for every page the cadets read.
The collected funds will be used to buy books every quarter, and send them to welfare facilities, sanatoriums and multicultural families.
The military planned the campaign to boost the ‘Reading Military’ movement, a program to reimagine military culture, and make it more meaningful.
The academy passed out 450 piggy banks to cadets, and is managing a ’34 Reading Leadership Program’ which encourages them to read 34 selected books over one year.
In addition, through a coaching program for reading, 120 cadets who participated gained certificates as second-degree reading instructors.
The academy’s faculty expects the cadets to lead the new military culture, which engages in reading and doing good deeds.
