Samsung Electronics announced the second consecutive year of its regional social program -- Samsung DigitAll Hope. As part of the program, Samsung plans to contribute U.S. $1.05 million by this year to organizations from Southeast Asia and Australia.

In an effort to "bridge the digital divide," more than $450,000 in grants will be awarded this year to projects that aim to enhance the lives of the disabled and youth with technology. Samsung said 15 organizations have already benefited from $600,000 in grants in 2003.

Samsung DigitAll Hope focuses on enriching lives with technology in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. In Singapore and Thailand, the focus will be on supporting programs that assist people living with disabilities and help them lead richer lives through existing and new development technologies. For the remaining countries, Samsung DigitAll Hope will contribute funding to initiatives that help youth achieve their dream of a better life for themselves and their community by using technology to bridge the digital divide.

Mr. Sang-Jin Park, CEP and president, Samsung Asia said, "We have a deep-rooted belief that technology is an increasingly important tool of progress. It has the power to enhance and transform the lives of everyone including the disabled, so we can look forward to a brighter future."

Charities, NGOs, and educational institutions are eligible to apply for grants. A regional panel then judges submissions based on a set of criteria, including the expected quality of lives, creativity, and innovation in the use of technology to develop better lives.
