Aspen Taiwan

30/07/15:

The Taiwan Fund for Children and Families, a non-profit government organization that was established in 1950, has 27 branches that care for indigent, abused and abandoned children across Taiwan.

These children, who are all aged between 9 and 12 years, received support from Aspen’s team in Taiwan for the second consecutive year as part of the Mandela Day campaign.

Together with 14 Aspen Taiwan employees, the children had a great time learning and playing dominoes in the nature classroom. A special excursion was also arranged to a venue in the suburb of Taipei City, which gave them an opportunity to relish nature and play at its best. To their delight they also had an opportunity to hand make traditional Chinese noodles which they enjoyed for lunch.

The children lavished the attention and care of the Aspen team who also blessed them with gifts that included Valda candies, school supplies, hand-painted cookies and keychains.

This activity inspired individuals to proudly take action to help change the world and make it a better place – not only on Mandela Day, but every day.
