The Taitung County Aboriginal Ebenezer Holistic Care and Development Association 台灣台東縣原住民以便以謝全人關懷發展協會 aims to offer after-school remedial teaching and character education counseling in a flexible and stepwise manner in hopes of providing the best care for underprivileged aboriginal children and elders in Taitung rural areas. Its primary objective is to reinforce family function and values, ultimately forming a complete and linked partnership.

In the numerous rural areas of Taitung County, young children are often socio-economically and educationally deprived. They grow up in families that parents constantly struggle with financial instability due to low education and alcoholism, which ends in a vicious cycle. Without avenues to vent their frustrations and emotions, they live in despair and hurt. With the advent of Taitung County Aboriginal Ebenezer Holistic Care and Development Association 台灣台東縣原住民以便以謝全人關懷發展協會, these children begin to see it in a new light. With a thirst for love and care, these children bond with staff members instantaneously and return their best efforts in demonstrating academic achievements.

Taitung County Aboriginal Ebenezer Holistic Care and Development Association 台灣台東縣原住民以便以謝全人關懷發展協會 offers after school tutoring, multi-faceted activities, dinners, and spiritual companionship to help those underprivileged children, in an attempt to compensate for the inadequacies of schools and family function. It further provides flexible and gentle teachings and communication styles to form an interconnected partnership with all needy children. Schools work under the stress that they need to structure teaching curricula, and they sometimes might neglect individual learning progress and needs.  The association offers boundless assistance for the whole year round.  It holds the “open door” policy for all children who are in needs, just  because they can easily divert from life track without proper guidance and care.  If they can obtain timely directions and advice in pursuit of their studies, they can avoid many trials and errors, further building up their self-values.  Oftentimes, instantaneous understanding and awakening cannot solely depend on one mind inspirational book or a lecture, and it can be achieved through well-planned guidance and companionship.  These needy children need support to rebuild their self-confidence and strong faith in believing what they can achieve, if they work hard toward their goals.

Since the establishment of the association for almost a year, the association was basically viewed as an institute that offers after school care and life counseling.  In Taiwan, there are many more similar organizations or institutes like ours established in remote rural areas.  The association is like a lighthouse that provides limitless warmth and love.  Most importantly, those children who come into this lighthouse will be able to enjoy learning and comfort at home without reserve.  This vision is commonly shared by all staff and volunteers who work in this association.
