Online PR News – 18-September-2012 – Richmond, VA – Patrick Kia in Richmond, VA is pleased to be able to give details regarding Kia’s incredible Green Light Project. The Green Light project aims to improve the accessibility to health and education resources for disadvantage youth in ailing regions.

The Green Light Project launched earlier this month in conjunction with the humanitarian organization, Good Neighbours. The official launch took place in front of a crowd of nearly 700 local residents of the Madale area of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, located in East Africa.

Kia has donated four K2700 trucks which will be used for safe transportation to and from school, mobile health clinics and libraries. Kia also plans to donate upwards of $13 million throughout 2012 toward the construction and day-to-day operations of a secondary school for the children of the area. The school will feature four classrooms, two laboratories and a library. In addition to the financial and vehicular donations, 70 volunteers will act to support the project from Kia’s Happy Move Global Young Volunteers, which is Korea’s largest private volunteer group.

The Green Light Project is symbolic of Kia’s efforts to help the less fortunate around the world. "A green light is the universal transit symbol to move forward, and as an automotive company, our Green Light Project will provide mobility to individuals in both a literal and figurative sense," said Thomas Oh, Executive Vice-President and COO of Kia Motors Corporation.

"Our Kia K2700 trucks will offer safe transportation to local residents who are isolated from healthcare and education services, and the Maendeleo Secondary School and its neighbouring Green Light Program Centre will empower individuals to challenge and move past restrictions that are keeping them from living a more fulfilling life."

Kia plans to extend the Green Light Projects to other countries and continue its global initiative to improve the well-being of people worldwide. Patrick Kia is proud to be affiliated with a company with such an admirable mission. For more information about Kia Motors Corporation products and services, visit
