Vivo has officially launched its three-year-long corporate social responsibility (CSR) project, Capture the Future in partnership with SOS Children’s Villages, Bangladesh.

The launch ceremony was held on Saturday at SOS Children’s Village Dhaka in Shyamoli.

Vivo plans to donate Tk80 lakh to support the implementation of this project.

The project aims to broaden children horizons for the future through imaging technology and to spark their creativity and imagination.

Against the backdrop of Bangladesh’s rapid economic growth, vivo wants to support the optimization of educational resources by addressing challenges related to children’s development.

This is why vivo launched the Capture the Future CSR project in collaboration with SOS Children’s Villages, Bangladesh.

Over the following three years, vivo will donate smartphones to SOS Children’s Villages, Bangladesh as teaching tools for imaging courses. The remaining donation will be provided in cash, Tk80 lakh.

The project will facilitate 144 public imaging course classes across six SOS Children’s Villages nationwide, thereby supporting the development of all-round education for children in Bangladesh.

The project will also organize annual fixed imaging journeys, where vivo mentors will teach children the art of photography and videography utilizing advanced imaging technologies. 

After the conclusion of the imaging journey, vivo will collect the photos taken by these children during the event, documenting their imaging stories.

These will be used to create and release a public service announcement video.

Additionally, their photographic works will be exhibited at an exhibition titled Capture the Future.

This will serve as a platform to showcase the creativity and dreams of the children, allowing more people to witness their imagination and aspirations.

Yue Liwen, culture counsellor at the Chinese embassy, said: “We hope that these children become not only pillars of the nation but also work hand in hand with us to build bridges of friendship between China and Bangladesh, growing through learning and practice.”

Yue Liwen graced the event with his presence as the special guest.

Chairman Zhang Xiaoliangand Vice President of the Council Ming Guangfu were present from CEAB (ChineseEnterprises Association in Bangladesh).

ICT Branch Executive Head of CEABYu Ying was also present at the launch ceremony.

On behalf of vivo, Li Qingyang, deputy managing director, vivo Bangladesh, and ChengShenggui, factory managing director, vivo Bangladesh, attended the ceremony.

From SOS Children’s Villages, Bangladesh, Dr Enamul Haque, national director, and his team, and Tapan Kanti Sarkar, founder and president of CTO Forum Bangladesh, attended the ceremony.
