San-Yuan is a really nice guy and a warm-hearted teacher, and he is really good at knitting art activities. Through the activity he wants the kids to learn that "everything you do, you need to work hard and have patience." Children in Agape Children's Home will share what they've learned down below.

Teacher San Yuan's knitting class is fun, he teaches us how to make paper butterfly, and even uses grass to make birds and fish. In our free time, he also teaches us how to sing. If you never used grass to knit before, making a fish will be a challenge; yes, it's a big challenge for me, but I have decided to take this big mission, not only finish it but also make it into my own artwork. When people finished the little fish, the teacher challenges us to turn it into a big fish. The "developing" part is really complex and hard, but following the teacher step by step, we still made the impossible happen. When we finished and I look back, I learned that with enough patience and will, anything is possible, nothing can stop us! Teacher San Yuan said when next time he comes, he will prepare something even harder for us. Because of this, I'm super excited for the next knitting class to come.

Through this knitting activity, I have learned that doing anything, you need a lot of will and a lot of patience. The hard thing is you need to face it and learn, and once you have learned how to do it, it will become easy. Teacher San Yuan woke up really early to go to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall and collect the best Ingredient that we needed for knitting. Through his action, I can really see that he really cares for us, treats us like his own family. I also learned from him that we should have more patience for first timers, a little bit of patience will make a big difference.

A year ago, we met Teacher San Yuan at a dinner party, he taught us how to make a paper 3D butterfly, and he promised that he will come back and teaches us more stuff.

I was excited to hear that he came back to us again.

Through Diversified Learning Project for Children, we aim to help children in Agape Children's Home and Mustard Seed Youth Home to explore more via learning!

To encourage teenagers to lead healthier lifestyles, the Mustard Seed Youth Home located in Hualien has conducted a DIY activity that has infused the art of liuli. The home hopes that the activity will discourage teens from the negative influence of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. It also hopes that this activity will encourage them to be more interested in the arts through free expression in their very own creations.

During the creation process, these teens became very focused on their learning. From the heating to the cooling of glass, they were meticulous and were careful about every single detail. This activity has become a significant part of their memory, and they hope to share their creation with their loved ones.

One of the teens, Xiao En, shared that she will be gifting it to her foster mother when she gets back home during the summer holidays, as she is extremely grateful for being taken good care of all this time. Another teenager, Xiao Fu, said that he hopes to immortalise every friendship he has in his art piece, and he hopes that it will be a constant reminder to respect and cherish his friends.

We also hope that the artistic creation process has given these teenagers the space and the time to reflect. Through quieting down their hearts, they are able to look back at every journey taken that has led them up to this. By breaking down the walls in their hearts, they will be able to become more gracious and accepting. We hope nothing but the best for these teens as they continue their life journey.

Give them wings to fly, help these youths in need!

We invite you to provide financial support for these young adults.

Teens make effort into contributing the society

Monthly cleaning streets activity was coming! Teens from Mustard Seed Youth Home brought up all cleaning stuffs, like brooms, trash bags, dustpans, rakes, and a cart, and walked to the community. While they were cleaning, neighbors cheered up for them. Besides, the chief of village saw them keeping picking up trashes in the sun and sweating, so he bought beverages for them. All of them were happy and all the tiredness were gone!

There were many kinds of trash on roads and in bushes, glasses, betel nut residue, cigarette butts and boxes, to go boxes, beverage cups, plastic bags, styrofoam, and even needles were included. After nearly an-hour of cleaning, they realized how hard cleaners work. Some said that people should not litter, because it may cause others' inconvenience. Moreover, if people stop littering, it's not necessary for teens from Mustard Seed Youth Home to clean up communities.

When we started this project, teens had some complain at the beginning. They wondered that why they had to clean communities, while there're still lots of places to be cleaned in the Mustard Seed Youth’s Home. The teachers communicated with them and shared with them that with everyone's effort, communities will be cleaner and it’s also a way to contribute to the society. They finally realized the meaning of this project and were willing to make effort to do so.

Through Diversified Learning ProjectMustard Seed Youth Home provides teens a variety of opportunities to learn, developing themselves, having more experience of social life, improving their social interaction skill in small groups, and enhance the social adaption skill. Moreover, Diversified Learning Project also focuses on moral education, helping teens develop positive characteristic and patience so that they may have good future and interaction relationship after leaving the Mustard Seed Youth Home.

The students from the Department of Child Development and Family Studies in Tzu Chi University frequently visit the teenagers in Hualian Mustard Seed Youth Home to lead all kinds of activities for children. This time they set up activities regarding sexuality education and the discovery of their inner self. Under the lead of the university students, everyone had a great time and were really passionate throughout the course. The children in the Youth Home appreciates their effort with sincere gratitude.

These young students with great passion and enthusiasm brought a totally different atmosphere to the kids in the Youth Home during the two weeks of their stay. During the first week, they taught kids how to discover their personalities and unique characteristics of themselves including their EQ, communication pattern, and their sense of moral values, enabling the kids to be more familiar with themselves throughout the activities.

During the second week, the children got an opportunity to learn more about how to interact with opposite genders, understanding where the physical boundaries are and the knowledge in regards to Children and Youth Protection Law, making sure they know that when they are engaging in physical interactions, be aware of other people's physical boundaries to avoid violating the law. As the activities came towards the end, these juniors in Tzu Chi University promised that they will back to the Youth Home if they ever have a chance.

Hualian Mustard Seed Youth Home serves around 20 teenagers from all over Taiwan; facing the difficulties in operating with limited resources and funding, Mustard Seed Youth Home wants to give thanks to all the university students that were willing to bring their skill base and profession into the community.

Education is crucial for children in Youth Home because most of them are lacking self-confidence, sometimes they refuse to learn because of their negative learning experience or others' malicious judgment on their family background. Mustard Seed Youth Home provides education programs to these youths to help them get more self-confidence and positive learning experiences through interesting and creative education methods. We hope the youths are able to be inspired by the Diversified Learning Project.

Children's First Public Performance
Children's First Public Performance

The First Public Performance

Children in the Mustard Seed Youth Home woke up early to go to the Freedom Plaza in Hualien City. It was the children's first public performance this year. It was an exciting and yet intimidating experience to perform in public. Before the performance, children have been practicing for several months. The children wanted to perform their best for the audience, so they practiced for many hours and worked very hard to make sure every song is sound-perfect.

Children's First Public Performance

Passionate Music Band

With the brisk love song "Answer" as an introduction, the audience followed the rhythm and tapped their feet along with the beat. Another song "Yours is the Kingdom" showered the audience with God's blessing. The performance ended with the famous song "Rice Field" as the audience sang together to wave with the melody. During the short fifteen minutes, the children performed at our finest and received huge applause and encouragement.

With this successful performance, the children gained their confidence on stage to showcase their talent. Children hope they can receive more invitations for future performing opportunities to share the beauty of the music with everyone.
