Taipei, May 9 (CNA) A non-governmental organization in Taiwan has launched a fundraising campaign, as part of an effort to give migrant workers greater access to Chinese language learning.

The initial goal of the "Book & Host" fundraiser is to obtain 1,000 sponsors for a one-year Chinese language program for migrant workers, mainly from Indonesia, said Huiyee Chiew (周慧儀), public relations officer with One-Forty, a group dedicated to building vocational skills among migrant workers.

The course content will focus on everyday life in Taiwan, including conversation in traditional markets, she told CNA.   [FULL  STORY]
