The CHT Foundation - “Decade-long Dedication to the Locals”

In 2006, Chunghwa Telecom (CHT) established the "Chunghwa Telecom Foundation" as part of the efforts in delivering social contributions.  Moreover, of the various social contributions, CHT particularly desires to focus on digital opportunity creation, which is closely tied to the telecom industry.
The origination of the digital opportunity creation was established by CHT employees who traveled into very remote areas of Taiwan, and built the infrastructure for a nationwide broadband network. Once the broadband infrastructure and the hardware are established, CHT further provided products/services either by donations or by discounted programs, as well as participated in education projects for the remote villages through Chunghwa Telecom Foundation with CHT volunteers. These efforts combined CHT’s core competencies with various community resources, in order to efficiently and effectively assist the rural communities in developing cultural industries, bridge the digital divide, and enhance the overall community living. CHT’s focus on local culture and services enabled communities throughout Taiwan to enjoy the diverse digital contents and the digital lifestyle.

Relationship between the Company and local communities has been founded on the basis of mutual trust and fairness, which we hope to expand and realize further growth within each community. By the end of 2016, we have established a total of 76 Digital Communities; our efforts will endure long into the future and become a part of the local community.


Main Tasks of The CHT Foundation

  Assist local cultural industry: Provide community cultural industry with an information exchange platform via the "Click Taiwan" website. The efforts and achievements of the local cultural industries, as well as community living stories and legends are fully presented with text, images and video clips on the website.

  Bridge the digital divide: Implement various "Digital Good Neighbors"projects in remote communities and aboriginal tribes.  These projects involve provision of digital equipment and broadband services, as well as introduction of social resources and corporate volunteers in the communities’ living, learning and industrial aspects.

●  Enhance community living: Youth Training Scheme is a program organized by CHT Foundation and Department of Radio & Television of National Chengchi University that encourages young adults to make real changes in life, step outside of the comfort zone to experience different things, to learn about themselves and the environment they grow up in through a different perspective. During summer vacations, univesity students were invited to provide service for 15-20 days at various Digital Communities. They were encouraged to apply what they learned in the local community and at the same time capture local stories on camera.

The 8th “Youth Training Scheme” program received entries from 50 university students, who were assigned to perform services and capture stories at Digital Communities. Continue to care and to participate in community activities; offer various volunteer services to help remote communities in achieving sustainable development.
