We continue to support a diverse range of community initiatives through our corporate volunteer services, education and community services, and financial and in-kind contributions.
Our corporate Volunteer Team, which consists of employees, their family members and Company retirees, has been active for over 25 years. Our corporate Volunteer Team is committed to helping the needy in the community through volunteer services. They include long-term and ad-hoc services focusing on elderly care, youth development and support to people with disabilities and other groups.
Being the premier telecommunications provider in Hong Kong, we provide hardware and communications services for charities and various community groups in need. We also strive to connect elderly people with technologies that promote active and smart aging. Through virtual reality ("VR") and Smart Pama smartphone workshops conducted at our retail shops and the elderly centres of our community partners, senior citizens are able to enjoy the convenience brought by technology. We also support the safety and communication needs of senior citizens with the continuous sponsorship for the Care for the Elderly Line.
PCCW/HKT served as the sole sponsor of the Shanghai-Hong Kong-Taiwan Youth IT Summer Camp, co-organised by the Hong Kong Computer Society, Shanghai Computer Society and Information Management Association, Taiwan. The camp aims to nurture young people who are interested in enhancing their IT knowledge and considering a future career in the technology sector.
We have been offering annual scholarships and bursaries to students of computer science, IT, new media and related disciplines for over 20 years.
