Renovation of the heritage houses in Wuqi Township
Description: Wuqi Township is the west of Taichung near the coastal plain. NanChien community is in theThe northeast of Wuqi. It’s build almost 300 years, origin of the name “NanChien” is unclear. Some people suggest it was because a long time ago, small boats and rafts could travel along the river to the port, and since the port lies to the south of the coast, is was called “Nankang”, which was then erroneously called NanChien because the “Kang” and “Chien” had similar pronunciations in Taiwanese. NanChien Community is located to the west of Taichung City. There are many places of historic value in our community, for example the hundred-year-old “Couple Tree”, the irrigation ditch, the old residences of noble families, and the community temple, etc.
Type of Work: very old house tells a different story. You can get first-hand experience on local Taiwanese culture by helping Wuqi township renovate old houses and streets.
Accommodation: We will stay in an accommodation owned by the community. Sleep in shared room. Sleeping bags are compulsory (You MUST bring your own, please). Meals will be served by the community.
