Community-Based CSR Activities

We contribute to the society by sharing our resources.

It is more than donation. We donate, but, go beyond.

We go and donate at the Orphanages, Homes for Aged, etc., but, we try to help them not only by donations, but also by sharing our knowledge_ teaching the children about the computers, about the modern technologies, and by sharing the happiness and time _ spending time with senior citizens, learning from them, singing with them, dancing with them, taking pictures with them, etc.

Bring Homeless children to National Park and playing game, and teaching computer knowledge for the whole day.
