Volunteers will act locally to get involve with restoring old houses and town streets, which is important for residences, as it would encourage a sense of belonging to a community. We hope volunteers who come to the community also help residents to rebuild up their confidence, and lay the foundation for future community work and cultural constructions. Every old house tells a different story. You can get first-hand experience on local Taiwanese culture by helping the community renovate old houses and streets. We are looking for passionate volunteers who love the old buildings and historical artifacts, while like the quiet and simple life in country.
Heng-Shan Community has spent 5 years reviving the lost traditional toy culture on a historic trail. For more than 200 years, this path had been a transport corridor trading salt and rice, and Heng-Shan became a cultural town since various toys and stories left by travelers. Today, people get back the disappearing Taiwanese folk toys, even recalled childhood memories by one hundred story paintings. There are, furthermore, a series of innovative toys were created with cultural thinking which were awarded Taiwan Good Craft (C-Mark) certificate in 2016.This summer, as a “folk toys town,” Heng-Shan Community is going to invite more volunteers to make the historic trail an interactive gallery with not only Taiwanese but also international toys.
The Taiwan Ghost Festival also happens during summer, volunteers will together prepare the festival with local people, experience the atmosphere of very unique Taiwan Halloween.
Since the devastation brought by Typhoon Morakot in 2009, the community Liouguei(Liouguei) has been moving on its way towards reconstruction and recovery. The local has made several attempts, including the establishment of Liouguei International Volunteers Camp in 2013. By holding the volunteers camp here at Liouguei, we hope to bring in energy and perspective from the outside, and at the same time imprinting the culture and characteristics of Liouguei on the memory of the volunteers involved.
