The widely quoted motto ‘With great power comes great responsibility’ has been held dear and put into years of practice by Dahua Technology, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry. With this in mind, Dahua technology deepens its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program ‘Lighting the Future’, which aims to help children who suffer from sickness or poverty in terms of education.
Dahua Technology’s ‘Lighting the Future’ program understands that charity is not only about material donations. Sometimes it also requires very personal participation and care. You have to take the human to human, heart to heart action, or indeed interaction, which itself can be the most precious help. That is very much the case with children with autism.

Devote their time
Behind every child that is suffering from autism, there is usually great stress and struggle for the whole family. The pain stems not only from the financial aspects but more importantly from the mind, the prospect of going on daily and without an easy solution. These are the children who have underwent unimaginable pain in silence, and could most definitely use as much help and from as many people as possible.
On the afternoon of December 15th, 2017, Dahua Technology organized a team of over 20 employees to visit the Carnation Recovery Center for Children, a facility that specializes in helping kids with autism. They brought with them, dozens of LeChange Baby Monitors, as well as many carefully picked books and toys as gifts for the children there. More importantly, the employees were prepared to devote their time, love and patience for the children.
They decorated the center to evoke a mood of Christmas and listened and talked to the children while playing Christmas themed games together. Everyone had a great time and felt needed by each other. According to instructors at the center, what these kids need, are not correction, but understanding. When they are not able to adapt to our world, we should try our best to adapt to theirs’. There is still a long way to go but Dahua Technology will keep striving.
Children are our future, but not all of them have access to the proper education they deserve. For decades, China’s urbanization, while an indicator of a booming economy, has been tearing traditional rural families apart. With more and more parents becoming migrant workers, children are left behind, where, due to complicated limitations, are not able to enjoy the same educational resources as the children in the cities.

Moreover there is the problem of safety. Since no one is watching over these kids except for possibly their grandparents, these children in rural areas are often in more danger than those in urban environments.
Long Xiang elementary school, located in the rural area of Bengbu City, Anhui province, is a typical example of a school that is established-for-left-behind-children under harsh predicaments and very limited funding. Dahua Technology decided to reach out with a helping hand via its ‘Lighting the Future’ program. As a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry, Dahua is competent and more than happy to provide Long Xiang elementary school with school supplies and security products.
Video communication with parents
In October of 2017, Dahua Technology donated to Long Xiang Elementary School, an entire set of video surveillance equipment, consisting of 103 items in total, across 20 categories. These include varies types of cameras, monitors as well as hard disks. In May, 2018, Dahua Technology further donated 42 computers and 40 monitors to the school, which could not only be used for an educational curriculum that is in synchronization with schools in big cities, but also for treasured video communication with their working parents far away.
Shang Ke, the headmaster of Long Xiang elementary school, after receiving the equipment, expressed his profound gratitude for the long waited systematic protection of students, and explained how the computers will make learning much more efficient. In addition to an official Letter of appreciation, Headmaster Shang also made a private call from his personal WeChat account highlighting how "one should work for such a generous corporation with a strong sense of social responsibility (like Dahua Technology) in the future."

Flame of future
Hangzhou Binjiang Binhong School, is also a school that is established for kids of migrant workers, and is located in the Binjiang District of Hangzhou. For this school, Dahua Technology has donated 28 sets of computers. It was hard to describe how delighted we felt, to see the photos sent back, showing the computers placed neatly on desks like lines of mirrors, ready to reflect the happy faces of children, who are due to fill the classroom when the new semester begins.
‘Lighting the Future’ is a charitable program that Dahua Technology plans on keeping running. The flame of future can only be ignited if the children have the proper education, communication and protection that they deserve. For years Dahua Technology has been trying to deliver a Safer Society and Smarter Living, a future that should not leave anyone behind.
