In Taiwan, there are estimated 20,000 children and more than 13,000 families who live in poor living conditions . In order to better help the children who live in this high risk families, United Way of Taiwan partners with lots of local social groups to provide social welfare and human services. By considering regional gaps, United Way begins with the charity project, named "One Day with Love", to call for more donors to take daily actions, and provide day care and after-school study program.
Many high-risk families in Taiwan need social support for the children, especially for those who are in great needs around Taiwan. In urban or rural areas, some single mothers or single fathers work very hard to take care of their children; however, when adults are not at home or work over time, children need a more safe environment and more opportunities to learn and grow. United Way of Taiwan witnesses this service gap, and encourage more local groups to work together to fight for kids' future
This One Day with Love project aims at providing more learning opportunities for local citizens to engage in teaching for poor children or youth after school. Therefore, single mothers or fathers won't be worried if they have to work all day, and their children are under good day care and thus enhance good quality of primary education. United Way of Taiwan connects social work professionals or senior volunteers to live united with local partners in communities. Local problems, local solutions.
In the long-term perspective, United Way of Taiwan believes that local community will find a local way to meet 20,000 children and 13,000 families' basic needs around Taiwan. By implementing One Day with Love project carefully with outcome-based measurement, we sincerely have faith in bridging people to re-connect again, and always care for the most vulnerable children, families and neighbors in communities. United Way's collective impact to unite local people for the next generation.
