Renovation of the Heritage Houses in NanChien Community
Description: 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 “Husband & Wife Tree”, the irrigation ditch, the old residences of noble families, and the community temple, etc. There also many local festivals, such as the Third Prince's Birthday, Glove Puppetry, etc. The volunteer work here involves restoring old houses and streets, which is important for residences, as it would encourage a sense of belonging to a community. We hope volunteers who come to our community also help residents rebuild their traditional values, and lay the foundation for future community work and cultural constructions.
Type of Work: Every old house tells a different story. You can get first-hand experience on local Taiwanese culture by helping the community renovate old houses and streets.
Study Theme: You can search more information about “Low Carbon (Green) Building” and “Old house renovation”. We will discuss more during the camp.
Accommodation: We will stay in an accommodation owned by the community. Sleep in shared room with woody bed. Sleeping bags are compulsory (You MUST bring your own, please). Meals will be served by the community.
Language: English, Taiwanese, Chinese Mandarin
Requirements: We are looking for passionate volunteers who love to old buildings and historical artifacts, and who like the quiet and simple life in country.
