In the UK, Samsung has been working with a number of youth education and charity partners in an effort to increase access to technology and resources for our leaders of tomorrow. Technology has had a profound effect on our lives and as one of the world's leading electronics companies, we believe it is our responsibility to support young people in gaining the necessary skills to enter the workforce. More importantly, we hope to inspire the next generation and unlock their full potential for a brighter future.

Our Charity Partners
Kids Company works with over 17,000 children in London alone every year, offering them emotional and educational support. Our partnership with Kids Company started from the Samsung Hope Relay during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Kids Company was one of three charity recipients of funds raised by the UK public by completing miles on their mobile app. In October 2012, the Samsung Digital Studio was launched at Kids Company's education centre (the Urban Academy) providing young people access to the latest technology that we hope will capture their imagination and inspire them to achieve - just as London 2012 inspired all of us.
