Foundation

 

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. In 2015, we organized a special “educational tour” that encouraged local residents to step out of their comfort zone and engage directly with residents of Jiaxian, Kaohsiung. By seeing and experiencing personally the beauties of others, we hope to inspire growth within the participants themselves. We have long accompanied local residents and heeded their needs through active interaction. 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 2015, 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.



CHT main tasks:

  • 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: Continue to care and to participate in community activities; offer various volunteer services to help remote communities in achieving sustainable development.
