Taiwan Sunshine participates in school outreaches in Taiwanese schools, especially during the different holiday seasons. Whenever possible, we organize parties for children in special education classrooms during which they can work on crafts, play games, decorate cookies, or do other fun things children should be doing. If you would like to join us, please let us know!
Along with the Galilee Social Welfare Family Foundation in Taitung, we have started a community center for families that have children with special needs. Our new space is a welcoming place where parents can get the support and encouragement they need. Whether that is quiet time, parenting seminars, or suggestions on how to help their children develop. Twice a month, parents can drop their children off for three hours and enjoy a date night.
Taitung Farm Club
As children with special needs grow older, many parents are concerned with what they will do after high school. There are still very few training programs and work opportunities in Taiwan; this place is a heavy burden on parents.
In September 2018, we were able to start a farm club at a special education high school in Taitung. At farm club, students learn about agriculture and growing healthy vegetables and fruits.
