TECH4ALL, Leave No One behind in the Digital World

Huawei believes that no one should be left behind in the digital world, so we developed TECH4ALL – a long-term, digital inclusion initiative for using technology, applications, and skills to empower people and organizations everywhere. We work with all types of partners to develop projects that maximize the value that digital technology can bring to the world in areas like education, health, the environment, and development. With our partners, we pledge to promote digital inclusion for all and build a fully connected, intelligent world where no one is left behind.
