Super Junior fans have built 16 schools in Africa, with plans for more


For Super Junior‘s 10th and 11th Anniversaries, ELFs came together to help build schools in Africa.

Through the Twitter account, SJ Charities, fans around the world were able to learn about the project. SJ Charities set up a system where ELF fan clubs were able to monitor their progress and promote their fundraising efforts for the project.
