Say the name, Seventeen! KNCU is honored to receive a generous donation from @pledis_17 in celebration of their 7th anniversary! Thank you for supporting our work to provide education to marginalized groups in Asia and Africa 🥰 #HAPPY_SVT_DAY pic.twitter.com/u3bJLdaQh3

The Korean National Commission of UNESCO announced their donation, and the specific project their donation will be going towards is the “Global Education Coalition.” More than 1.5 billion students and youth have lost their access to or been hindered from education because of school closures due to the pandemic. This project aims to protect children’s right to education, especially during this disruptive time.
In order to return the love we have received over the past 7 years, we have decided to contribute to creating a world in which no one, including the underpriviledged in education, will be marginalized.
Besides celebrating their debut anniversary, SEVENTEEN has continuously donated to many causes throughout the years, both individually and as a group.
