The effort has been concentrated on 2 major programs focusing on "public welfare micro-films" and "mobile applications," we used our technological leverage to overcome bottlenecks, deliver greater impact and launch digital public welfare initiative. In 2021, the 9th microfilm “Invisible Children” and “One in Ten Thousand Special You” were launched, which respectively focused on the rights and interests of stateless children and the rare disease children. They all reached the click-through goal and issued a total prize of NT$ 200,000, driving the fund-raising to grow by 14.93% to more than NT$ 2.85 million.
In 2021, TWM published “PAIA, an online platform for machine learning”, which broke the territorial restrictions and was not affected by the pandemic. As long as there was a network, it was still possible to learn AI programs remotely at any time, thus expanding the influence of science and technology education. In 2021, PAIA platform accumulated nearly 2,700 registered members and uploaded nearly 3,900 AI codes.
From 2012 to 2020, TWM joined hands with 36 NPOs, social enterprises and 17 groups of film, television and music creation teams for 9 sessions, and embraced love with technology to make love infinite. In 2021, the tenth year of the public welfare driven by science and technology, it is officially transformed into Tech The Dreamers. It integrates Taiwan Mobile Foundation, Social Enterprise Insights, and AppWorks to focus on technology empowerment, support innovative solutions, promote social welfare and exchanges in the field of science and technology, and help more public welfare value propositions to sprout in the local area. In its first session, the social enterprise Silver Gate was selected for its APP which create food delivery and long-term care resources for elders with scientific and technological strength. The APP is scheduled to be officially launched in March 2022.
TWM plans to facilitate matching public welfare resources and technical talents by launching a program that offers up to 2 million in cultivation awards. Using innovative technologies, we aim to assist regional revitalization teams in achieving their dreams and caring for a larger number of disadvantaged groups. Taiwan Mobile Foundation has commissioned Social Enterprise Insights and AppWorks, and integrated resources from these parties. Every year, we collect applications and invite experts to serve as judges to select teams. We provide funding, technology, and personnel to lead social enterprise teams in amplifying the focus on biodiversity issues so that more sustainable values can take root locally and use technology to support regional revitalization. Buy Directly from Farmers, a technology-empowered agricultural initiative, and "Agriweather," which incorporates smart agriculture monitoring devices, have been selected as the winning teams of the second term. The presentation ceremony is scheduled to take place in March 2023.
