Ready for summer discovery? Eden Social Welfare Foundation welcomes this year's Taiwan Tech Trek (TTT) interns.

   

Coming from different parts of U.S.A with different backgrounds, three Taiwan Teck Trek interns will spend the summer vacation together and embark their journey at Eden, expecting to learn and explore the field of NGOs in Taiwan.

 

Sam Chen, a psychology major student said, “Seeing the experienced teachers and caregivers teaching the children, I realized how difficult it is to work with the disabled people, and it all takes passion、experience and love. Being in the classes every day, I start to know how careful and considerate the teachers are. Each day is a novel to me that inspires me to probe and gain more from Eden.”

 

Nora Lin, a third-year student major in speech therapy, is surprised to learn at her first time assisting people with visual impairment, “I am pleased to learn different Human-guides Techniques during orientation, also, it’s my first time being blindfolded to experience a life without vision, which made me realize how tough it is to live in a life without vision

     

The upcoming missions for them are - 2017 English Camp for Youth with Visual Impairments and – 2017 Multicultural Summer Camp for Children of New Immigrants.
