Unsere Partnerorganisation für Workcamps in Taiwan heißt Vision Youth Action (VYA), die 2002 von jungen Freiwilligen eines bilateralen Austauschprojektes zwischen Taiwan und den USA  gegründet wurde. Neben regionalen Freiwilligeneinsätzen organisiert VYA seit 2007 (am Anfang in Kooperation mit NICE unserer japanischen Partnerorganisation) internationale Workcamps in Taiwan und baut das Campangebot aufgrund der positiven Erfahrungen der letzten Jahren immer weiter aus. In allen Projekten werden auch lokale Freiwillige teilnehmen.

Die taiwanesischen Campausschreibungen sind oft nicht ganz einfach zu verstehen. Wir senden auf Anfrage gerne die original Ausschreibungen zu, da diese Bilder und Photos enthalten, die es leichter machen, sich ein Bild von den Projekten zu machen.

Tmabun means "deep ploughing" in Atayal. We deep plough in the tribal and practice the Gag spirit through living together, working together. However, our lease is going to be expired in a year but we still find the new place in order to keep care work on. Therefore, we have to construct a new building to keep supplying services and inheriting cultural to our tribes. This summer, we will invite volunteers to cooperate with us to construct the Atayal building and living together. This building will be the public space for cultural care. Beside of above, we will cooperate with P'uma Elementary School, the first experimental Atayal elementary school in Taiwan, and the health station with Atayal cultural like M'ihu, Suru, Maytayax, to hold activities for kids and elderly.
