A new perspective to know farming and yourself! Since 2017, the Taiwan hydroponic programme has come back! Within these 4 days, you can experience a different attitude to life full of human kindness in Houli District of Taichung by interacting with the local chaps.
Volunteers can not only learn hydroponic farming and other farming knowledge, but also participate in the promotion of food safety education, after-school tutorials for the underprivileged kids and dinner care. The devotion of volunteers also grants the kids the chance to meet and exchange with youths from different countries and open their window of life and their international vision.
Come join Hydrovege, a Taiwan social enterprise, to bring changes to the kids in Houli!
