NTHU students cheer for their trip to Kenya this summer as volunteers on May 29 in Hsinchu County.
Date: Jun 04, 2015
International volunteers from National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) are going to the
east African nation of Kenya this year for the first time. They will provide services such as assisting with local community construction, information education and cultural exchanges. Knowing that NTHU students are willing to provide service in his home country, Father Mathews Odhiambo Owuor, who came from Kenya to preach in Taiwan, not only provided students with information, but also made this volunteer trip possible, hoping that it would change the future of the children in Kenya.
Father Owuor said the gap between the rich and poor in Kenya is wide; students do not have classrooms, water and electricity. Education is a luxury for them. He highly commended the NTHU students for spending thirty-five days of their summer vacation in Kenya, providing public services and doing volunteer work. He will accompany the volunteers to Kenya with the hope that a volunteer platform will be established to give Kenyan students a glimpse of hope. [FULL STORY]
