攜手嚮光 Brighter Together 線上互動教室讓嚮光社群能繼續與我們保持聯繫,透過進行線上視訊教學或在缺乏網路基礎設備地區分配實體資源的方式,為嚮光的孩子們提供免費且獨特的教育資源。我們將邀請更多朋友一起加入,並期待提供更多樣化的課程內容給所有嚮光社群的大朋友還有小朋友們,讓他們知道自己是被關心著、被愛著的。

Brighter Together allows our communities to continue to connect with us and provides free and unique educational resources for our youth through online livestreaming content and offline resources where internet infrastructure is lacking. It works towards providing assistance to alleviate some of the key factors that disportionately affect low-income and underserved communities during this period of isolation. Three key factors include access to schooling and education, rise of malnutrition, and mental wellness that may result in depression and physical violence.

  • Lack of technology supplies for online learning (ipads, cameras, etc) 
  • Difficulties setting up equipment and obtaining children’s registration if they lack access to the internet

For Bright Side Communities

◈ Brighter Futures Scholarship Counseling

Our support for Brighter Futures Youth continues and we are open to having interested Bright Side communities, parents, and youth call us for how they may be for financial support through scholarships or if paid apprenticeship and vocational training and opportunities are available.

 

◈ Brighter Futures Tutoring 

We fund tutoring for youth since 2019, matching them up with qualified teachers throughout Taiwan. We want to ensure that their access to education is not compromised.

☼ Bright Side Individual Calls 

We understand that not all Bright Side communities and individuals have access to stable internet and are willing to have one on one chats with children during this epidemic to keep them engaged and give parents a few minutes of much needed break each day. We will also be able to play some basic games over the phone such as 20 questions or simply just listen to what the children have to say.

♡ Hearts Fulfillment Package

We will tap into our plant-based food fulfillment program empowering underserved communities through food distribution and engaging youths to cook and share plant-based meals with their neighbors. We work with local organic farmers, suppliers, and eateries to provide delivery of basic food staples to families to combat malnutrition.



給嚮光社群

◈ 遠景計畫獎學金諮詢

嚮光對青少年的支持不間斷,對遠景計畫有興趣的服務社群、家長、青少年都可以以電話聯繫我們,諮詢獎學金相關補助、有薪實習和職涯培訓機會。


◈ 遠景計畫家教服務

嚮光自2019年起資助孩子的家教費用,並為他們與台灣的合格教師配對。我們希望確保孩子們接受教育的機會不受侷限。


☼ 遠景計畫個人來電諮詢

我們理解並不是所有嚮光社群和服務對象都有穩定的網路能夠使用,我們願意在疫情期間與孩子們進行一對一的聊天,一方面保持孩子們的參與度,另一方面也給父母們幾分鐘必須的休息時間。不僅如此,我們還可以透過電話進行一些簡單的遊戲,像是情境猜謎等等,或是聆聽孩子們想說些什麼。
