Promote Rural Education and Sports Activities
The urban-rural gap is one of the main factors behind the economic and social issues of a country. Take Taiwan for example, the rural-urban gap in education has always been the most serious issue that requires attention from the people. We know that children living in rural areas can possess unlimited potential. We only need to provide resources to help them to exhibit. TDCC has kept contributing to the school's long-term education development in rural areas across Taiwan. In addition to the projects of "After-School Care Program" and "Talent Development Program," we also encourage holistic education of students from rural areas. TDCC hopes to enhance the quality of education in rural areas by implementing the "Cultural and Creative Talents Program" and cultivating future sports talents to realize their full potential so that they are able to dedicate themselves to future professions.
After-School Care Program
Since 2015, we have organized the "After-School Care Program" to help unattended students from disadvantaged families. The school will provide daily after-school tutoring to assist students in completing homework, and remedial teaching program to help them catch up with the course in the classroom. Besides, considering that disadvantaged families may not afford computers and network equipment, these students can use the school computer equipment to work on their coursework and learn data processing after class. Also, various activities, such as sports, arts and cultural, are arranged to provide sufficient learning resources for students.
Cultural and Creative Talents Program
TDCC has kept sponsoring Shiding Elementary School in New Taipei City, in arranging the "Cultural and Creative Talents Program" since 2011 to provide disadvantaged students with after-school care. Schools not only offer dinner but also assign teachers to assist students in completing homework and remedial teaching and offer a variety of learning courses, such as ocarina playing.
TDCC Children's Passionate Concert
We have long supported the diverse learning activities in elementary schools of Hualien Xikou, Beichang, and Chung Hua. The music clubs of the three schools have established and thrived in a healthy environment so that music-loving children have the opportunities to find their stage on campus. Although these children are not talented students from music classes, their love for music is definitely not inferior to those which have learned music since young. We witnessed their passion for music and got the idea of holding a concert to support their delightful expectations for music. To enrich the concert program, we also invited the three other elementary schools, Jian Ching, Experimental Primary School, and Ji An, to jointly hold the six-school concert of "2018 TDCC Children's Passionate Concert." It was an unforgettable experience and memory for children to stand on the stage confidently and give full play to it and also a critical stage of life development for them.
Talent Development Program
We care about children's education in rural areas and work with the schools in improving qualities in aspects of class, character, talent, and life of children and prevent environmental factors from limiting their learning. Also, we have invested more in teachers and related resources and achieved the results of the dramatic improvement of teaching quality as well as the disadvantaged students' performance.
