Digi’s CSR programmes are encapsulate under “Empower Societies”. Through partnerships with stakeholders, Digi is able to identify, reach and bring benefits of internet to communities that are not connected by leveraging on its core business and technology. Digi funds and measures the results of its CSR work by the level of connectivity reached.
Seven corporate programmes run under Empower Societies, each targeting different community groups – youths, children, women, the underserved, and internetizens, but with a common goal of building strong digital communities.
Digi’s flagship programme, CyberSafe in Schools, nurtures a safer internet for all by building digital resilience and fostering responsible digital citizenship among Malaysian school children. To date, 80,000 students and more than 5,000 school teachers as well as 1,000 Bestari ICT teachers have benefited from this programme. The programme curriculum is supported by findings from the largest national survey of online behavioural patterns and cyber risks among children. An online portal also provides children with a fun and interactive cyber safety learning experience.
Digi’s other flagship programme is Digi Challenge for Change. In its 6th year, the competition taps the power of the internet to improve lives of communities. This year, Digi partnered with social change makers to find innovative internet enabled solutions that create sustainable, inclusive
socio-economic impact for communities.
