Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd., in partnership with the Collaborative Project on Children and Youth Development under the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, has hit yet another successful landmark with its ‘Digital Bus’ initiative. This endeavor rolled into action in the Cognis Thai Border Patrol Police School in Sakon Nakhon province on June 10, 2024, as part of its continuous mission to bridge the digital skills gap in Thailand. Aiming high, the program targets to train 2,000 personnel across six provinces within the year.

The Digital Bus project represents a strategic collaboration between Huawei Thailand and the Cognis Thai Border Patrol Police School in Sakon Nakhon, which serves students from nine remote villages, totaling 262 young learners from kindergarten to grade 6. Through this partnership, the Digital Bus curriculum has been tailored to focus on economic philosophy, leveraging technology to bolster social development knowledge, and promoting environmental conservation. This initiative underscores Huawei’s unwavering commitment to bridging the digital divide in Thailand while empowering young digital natives, especially in less accessible areas.

Since its inception in 2022, Huawei has consistently partnered with various schools throughout Thailand to advance the Digital Bus initiative, ensuring that burgeoning talents in remote areas are well-versed in innovation and technology. Subjects culled include sciences, cutting-edge innovations, and cultural studies, with a view to their practical application in everyday life. The stark reality is that digital inequality persists in many parts of the world, including Thailand’s remote regions, where technology adoption lags behind urban centers. This disparity in digital technology access and knowledge utilization continues to create significant gaps.

For 2024, Huawei is on a mission to extend the Digital Bus’s reach, training 2,000 students and personnel across six provinces, including Nakhon Phanom, Krabi, Kanchanaburi, Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Nayok, and Rayong. Efforts in Nakhon Nayok and Rayong build upon Huawei’s ongoing collaboration with UNESCO since 2023. This year, an enhanced Digital Bus curriculum places a strong emphasis on technological applications in agriculture, boosting household agricultural productivity, and educating the youth on the importance of cybersecurity to arm them against online threats.

Dr. Apisit Phuengphorn, Principal of Cognis Thai Border Patrol Police School, shared his thoughts: “On behalf of our organization, I express profound gratitude to Huawei for their steadfast support of Thai youth. The Digital Bus project graciously imparts critical digital knowledge, while also engaging kindergarteners in recreational activities, providing nourishing meals, enhancing our school scenery, and paving the way for numerous enriching activities. Ultimately, the Digital Bus project not only inspires but also paves the way for children in Thailand’s remote areas to nurture their dreams.”

Over the past two years, the Digital Bus initiative has disseminated invaluable digital knowledge to students from upper elementary to junior high levels, and extended its reach to over 4,500 provincial commercial officers, volunteer doctors, and local laborers across 14 provinces. These include Sing Buri, Songkhla, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Chiang Mai, Nakhon Ratchasima, Phichit, Phayao, Bangkok, Chonburi, Chiang Rai, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Samut Sakhon, Nakhon Si Thammarat, and Nakhon Nayok.

Committed to enhancing education and the quality of life for youths in Thailand’s remote areas, Huawei has generously delivered 24 ‘Ideahub’ Interactive Displays to Border Patrol Police Schools and local healthcare centers nationwide. Additionally, Huawei facilitated electricity and digital classrooms at the Border Patrol Police School in Ban Mong Kua, Tak province, by installing solar panels and Huawei Smart PV Solutions. The Digital Bus initiative is intricately woven into Huawei’s overarching mission, ‘Grow in Thailand, Contribute to Thailand,’ driving Thailand towards becoming a digital hub of ASEAN. Through the ‘Lead Everyone Forward, Leave No One Behind’ initiative, Huawei continually advocates for digital equality.

    I think this initiative by Huawei is incredible. It’s great to see big companies making a difference in remote areas.

    • Techie123 June 10, 2024

      Sure, it’s a nice gesture, but let’s not forget that Huawei is getting a lot of PR from this. It’s not purely altruistic.

      • Sophia H June 10, 2024

        PR or not, at least the kids are benefiting. Sometimes it’s not about the intentions but the outcomes.

      • John Doe June 10, 2024

        I agree with Sophia. The results speak for themselves. These kids are getting access to something they otherwise wouldn’t have.

  2. grower134 June 10, 2024

    This sounds like another attempt by Huawei to soften its image after all the controversies. Just saying.

    • Anna June 10, 2024

      But isn’t it better that they’re using their resources to contribute positively, regardless of their motivations?

    • grower134 June 10, 2024

      True, but we should always be critical of tech giants and their motives.
