Hope Media

For many years, the Chairperson of Globe Union, Mr. Scott Ouyoung, has spared no efforts in promoting public welfare. Hope Media was established in November 2016, a foundation aiming to help the disadvantaged. 

The aim is to create a multi-modal media platform to report on good and beautiful things in Taiwan, advocating public welfare and justice issues, and the spirit of “seeing what is right and do it” Mr. Ouyoung’s initiative aims to raise awareness of social issues.

Hope Media can connect non-profit organizations so that they can mutually benefit from their shared resources and experience. It can also directly support individuals in need by providing necessary and timely assistance.


Hope Media host multiple events to support the mission of Hope Media in the local communities. The events such as Taiwan Yixing Award, Hope Media Award, Native & Hakka Intergeneration Creative Competition, and the children’s theater of “Hope Media Character Education” go a long way in making a difference to those in need.
