Green Light Project Malawi

Kia builds new school in Malawi
(0)

As a global automaker, Kia is always seeking opportunities to grow with local communities and firmly believes in the value of corporate social responsibility (CSR). For Kia, this just means giving back to the community—which is why Kia launched the ‘Green Light Project’ back in 2012 for communities in Africa, which help build facilities, such as new schools, that aim to provide improved access to health care and education by supporting the sustained growth of the community.

Surprise! The Kia World Cup round-up
(0)

When it comes to sports, Kia takes things pretty seriously. As the official sponsor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, we had the chance to celebrate this mega sporting event with football fans from all over the world in Rio this year. Over the past month, there were indeed many surprises in Rio, as superstar teams went head-to-head for the title of best football team in the world. As the football festivities slowly come to an end, we wanted to take a look back on the variety of Kia-sponsored events held for our fans, tied together with the underlying theme of ‘Surprises Make Surprises.’

What kind of brand is Kia? This is one of the first questions that any company asks itself when setting out to define its brand image. The answer for Kia came from the concept of ‘surprise.’ And our conclusion was simple: Kia simply wants to help customers re-discover the element of surprise in their daily lives.

Today is International Day of Families, and to commemorate, we decided to feature some of our own extended #KiaFamily.

(0)

The beautiful country of South Korea is where Kia’s headquarters lie, and as one of the country’s auto manufacturers, we’re always looking for a chance to showcase the beauty that lies within South Korea. So we were thrilled to have the opportunity to invite journalists from Italy for a visit! Kia invited Franco Gionco and Laura Seber from Motorcube Italy for a chance to experience the best of Korea firsthand with the help of the Kia Sorento, which proved to be the best tour guide for their trip.

Fuel for the future—Green Light Project
(0)

When it comes to driving, we all know that green means “go”. Unfortunately for some, in life, the light is red—not because of their own inabilities, but because of the surrounding environment. In an effort to give more people the ability to “go”, Kia has invested in the ‘Green Light Project,’ an ongoing social outreach project first started in 2012 that helps communities in Africa by providing facilities and support for sustained growth.

If you haven‘t noticed, we‘re very excited about this summer… As an Official Partner of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, Kia will be hosting a variety of events leading up to this mega sporting event celebrating football all over the world. We couldn‘t be more excited to partner with FIFA World Cup Brazil™, especially because of the rich football history embedded within the culture of many South American countries. So we thought, why not journey through the continent to ready ourselves for the international football event?
