Listen to the Echo of the Sea & Wind in Ding An Village
Description: Due to their industrial and commercial development is insufficient. The residents are mainly farming and animal husbandry, planting rice, steamed bread, raising livestock, ducks and other poultry. The outflow of young people and the aging of the population are serious that result in the elderly and children in the community who are mostly lacking in vitality and creativity. Due to the geographical location, the educational resources of children are relatively insufficient. We hope that the participation of volunteers will encourage children to pay attention to their hometown issues and expand their international vison. It can also encourage residents to care about community affairs, and expects different cultural elements to collide with different sparks.
Type of Work: 1- Volunteers lead the elderly to experience different cultures and stimulate curiosity and action. Encourage the elderly to participate in community activities. This community handles the elderly care bases and health promotion activities every Friday. 2- Volunteers are painting the wall inside the community that continues the results of the 2019 International Volunteer Camp’s estuary ecological survey and so can paint animals, plants or what you see at the Ding'an community. 3- Workshop on community development: Volunteers can provide advice on the overall planning of the future community landscape. That advice about the community lacks creativity due to the large number of the elderly and how can we promote International exchange of youth views and cultural sharing among countries.
