Core concept
We insist on the philosophy "A corporation's responsibility is as large as itself, true caring is the beginning of action", hold to the spirit of "Base in Taiwan, caring for our land", care for society in terms of different needs, devote long-term manpower and resources to minority groups, provide care for physical and mental disabilities, participate in youth and children personality development, and prevent social issues, etc. We integrate core resources, promote digital inclusion, and improve the domestic soft power of digital cultural content.
Commitment and Actions
Taiwan Mobile Co., Ltd. (TWM) makes good use of four core resources: voice services, Internet bandwidth, digital content, and innovative services. It uses new technological forces to drive public interest, and assists public interest groups to enter into digital applications. At present, more than 20 non-profit technology projects have been developed, including the provision of multi-services for non-profit organizations, disadvantaged groups, and elders in the Myfone store to promote digital communion.
