聽聽老師跟孩子說的話 Words from our teachers and the kids
I think his (dog) tummy is the cutest! He’s such a good dog, doesn’t bite others and he listens to you. It’s cruel that these dogs were abandoned, I hope that by taking photos of them, we can help them find their furever homes!
I wasn’t aware of environmental issues when I was young and it was only when I was in my 20s and 30s that I found out about them. If I was 10 years old and knew what I knew now, what kind of changed person would I be today?
During the class we learned photography and also how to get along with doggies – every photo that you see the child took if full of dedication and love. Children learned that they had the power and skills to help those in need.
I was very touched by the event. When I left, the children waved their hands and shouted my name. I am very fortunate to be able to participate in such a meaningful workshop with a group of kind people and a wonderful group of children. I cherished every moment with them today and even if i was silent and reading by myself, the loving atmosphere itself was electric!
From this class I’ve learned a lot about animals. I’ve also learned that you can use every day materials to make fun things and end up creating art! I like all of Bright Side workshops, the classes are very interesting. During the workshop although sometimes aspects of the creation can be tough, it’s always fun and interesting!
Being able to have children interact with dogs, children will have a better understanding and respect for all life because they will come to realize that dogs also need to be loved.

“If I was 10 years old and knew what I knew now….”
How would the world be different if we knew at 10 years old what we know now? If we were shown at an early age compassion, kindness, and empowered to make a positive change? Would the world be a kinder place?
For 2019 we will focus on raising awareness and cultivating love for the animals and environment through full day artistic creation, plant-based meals, and show kids how to take action. We need your support; we have a goal of $250,000 NT（$8000 USD）for multiple workshops throughout Taiwan.
Bright Side Projects is eager to undertake this monumentous task of helping our children be a part of the global movement via The “Advocacy Through Art” series, the first of its kind in Taiwan that promotes activism, art, animal awareness, and positive environmental impact. We will focus our work with kids in distant communities that we have been trying to provide with a support system and resources for the past six years. Meals are plant-based and workshop materials are from upcycled goods whenever possible.
In our workshop at Taitung’s ShinMaLan we introduced endangered animals and our human hand in the contribution of environmental impact, what kids can change in their daily lives, to lessen the harm. They then made their own imagined animals and related what environmental hazards they faced. At Taoyuan MuHsiang Children’s Home we had kids first learn basic skills of photography and then use this to interact and to truly “see” the faces of the stray dogs in Taiwan. $500NT funds a warm plant-based meal while $1000NT ensures an entire day’s worth of education. Donate to support kids to learn about real issues and problem solve solutions – we need your help!
For the past six years, we have been committed to bringing high quality resources and unique educational opportunities to youth in Taiwan.. We are unable to continue our work without support and currently only have enough funding for 3 months of operation through September.
