The KCC Consultant, Meeyoun Jee, stated this recently in Abuja during a roundtable with Nigerian pupils and friends, while introducing some fundamentals of the Korean culture. Jee said the centre also organised quizzes and scholarships for participating Nigerian pupils, noting that the centre was open to adult Nigerians as well.
She said, “We collaborate with the FCT Universal Basic Education Board. We also sometimes collaborate with the Secondary Education Board; we also work with an association of designers and artists. We call them for exhibitions. We have several areas to collaborate. The centre has quizzes, competitions, scholarships which we do in conjunction with SEB.
“We do poetry too. All of these activities are to intimate the Nigerian people with the Korean culture. The programmes are to make Nigerians experience the Korean culture. There is a Korean New Year ceremony where people make kites and fly them in the sky to symbolise the end of bad fortunes and good fortunes coming.
“There is a Korean Cultural Day. We hold it every month and we have participating Nigerian pupils and friends. We have different subjects which cut across both countries that we discuss.”
