KMS Technology empowers young generation through education

Must read

KMS Technology, a leading software development and services company globally, has consistently demonstrated its commitment to CSR initiatives. In 2023, KMS has continued to make a positive impact through various CSR activities, with a central focus on education.

Lighting hope for excellent students with difficult backgrounds

The journey of 12th grader Hoang Trong Nguyen in Quang Tri Province has been far from easy. Born into a poor family, Nguyen faced numerous challenges growing up, resulting in his view toward life entirely of negativity. However, Nguyen soon realised the importance of education, and he always worked hard in his study to fulfil his burning desire to become a physician. Nguyen’s aspirations received a significant boost when he became one of the 60 students getting a set of computer under the “Gift a Future” program, where KMS partners with the Hands For Hope organization in delivering gifts and scholarships to disadvantaged high school students in central Vietnam. This gift does not stop at being a single donation; it also serves as a source of inspiration, motivating Nguyen to work harder and excel in his studies.

The “Gift a Future” program is just one example of KMS’s commitment to education. As the company believes in the value that education brings, its priority lies in nurturing the young generation by leveraging KMS strength in technology, reflected in various initiatives.

“Ươm Mầm” – an exclusive KMS scholarship program – has been ongoing for four years, facilitating the lives and studies of a number of excellent IT students with difficult family backgrounds in HCMC and Danang. The program focuses on covering both tuition and living expenses for the students in the whole 4-year university enrolment, with a re-evaluation done at the beginning of every school year.

In July 2023, KMS entered into a strategic partnership with the VietHope organization. Through many meaningful activities, KMS aims to equip underprivileged IT students with a solid foundation in preparation for their future, including mentorship, soft and technical skills training, and career orientation sharing.

The year 2023 also marks the 5-year milestone of the company’s partnership with Passerelle numeriques Vietnam (PNV). On such a special occasion, a computer lab with 25 laptops was gifted to PNV. At the same time, the company still maintains the annual means of assistance to disadvantaged students, namely mentorship, soft and technical skills training.

Supporting other educational causes

With a strong focus on education, KMS collaborates with other organizations with the same vision. In August 2023, 75 KMS runners joined the online fundraising campaign hosted by Teach for Vietnam, with a hope to create a better future for the young generation, starting from the improved public schools.

In addition, “Xe Về Nhà” – an annual program where less-fortunate IT students are granted a complimentary return bus ticket to reunite with their families during Tết – has been successfully run over the last four years, bringing thousands of smiles and happiness to the unfortunate students.

“The more successful, the more we need to contribute to society,” said Mr. Dai Tran, KMS Technology’s Managing Director. As we believe in the transformative power of education, we continue to spread our wings and ink our footprints in as many corners of the ‘educational sector’ as possible so that more and more young people can thrive and reach their full potential, which will enable them to shape a brighter and better future.
