The Town and Talent Project was initiated by Mr. Sayling Wen in 2001. Motivated by altruism and humanitarian concern for Chinese people in the poor western region of China, the project aims to narrow the gap between the wealthier eastern and poorer western regions by using Internet technologies to help local schools and businesses. Believing that "charity deeds would eventually lead to business opportunities," the company has actively pursued philanthropy as part of its core business practice. Focusing most of its efforts in the western part of China, a key part of Town and Talent¡¯s corporate philanthropy includes an e-charity platform that provides Internet skills and training to students and teachers at over 150 schools. On the business side, the company offers an Internet-based "$100 SaaS" (Software as a Service) product for small and medium-sized businesses in their OA, CRM, ERP, and SCM applications. Town and Talent helps create job opportunities for students and teachers who participate in the Town and Talent Project while helping businesses and alleviating the cycle of poverty in the more rural areas of China.

¡°West China Story,¡± was initiated by Mr. Ted Wen, a director of Town and Talent Technologies (China) Co., Ltd (TTT), at the beginning of 2007. This project encourages students to learn Internet web design skills by supporting them in their efforts to write stories about the customs, people, sights, and sounds in their hometowns on www.WestChinaStory.com. In return, the participating students, the majority of whom come from poor families in the rural areas of western China, receive financial aid to continue their schooling.

This is a village in northwest China. Every day, the villages have to walk 20 kilometers to a well to fetch water. Water is so scare that many families store rain and snow for drinking.
Over the past three years, we have established more than fifty Internet bases in Yellow Sheep River and other underdeveloped areas in China including Shaanxi, Gansu, and Ningia Provinces.
This is a village in the northwest. Although the Internet cannot solve every one of their problems, it nevertheless serves as a very important door to the outside world. Now the door is open, so hope will come to them.
