Environmentally-friendly Orange Detergent DIY Course.

The Orange Detergent DIY Course was held at former Fenghu Elementary School (No. 5, Bashichi Bridge, Zaoqiao Township, Miaoli County), from 8:00 to17:00 on April 10 and 17 2022. In the class, the participants learned to use a variety of fruits and vegetables to make environmentally-friendly detergents for themselves. They made good use of oranges and grapefruits, the featured fruits of Miaoli County. Not only can these detergents be used to wash hair, face, and body, but can also be used to wash clothes, dishes, or clean the house. The cost of self-made detergent is low and can reduce expenses for the family. On the other hand, by participating in the course, new residents can enhance the concept of environmental protection and learn to take appropriate action. New residents also learned that it’s not difficult to appreciate natural resources and protect the environment at the same time. Everyone can implement this lesson in daily life.

The Visitor Care for New Residents Training Program 2022

The Visitor Care for New Residents Training Program 2022

was held on Sunday, March 6, totaling 13 hours. The Service Center for New Immigrant Families of Miaoli County holds an interpreter training program every year. However, without fixed employment being offered, when the unit requests a qualified interpreter, it is relatively difficult to find one. To earn a living, most of the qualified interpreters have full-time jobs, making it difficult to find temporary interpreters. This year, we would like to rely on the language skills of foreigners living locally and obtain their assistance to care for new resident families in the Miaoli County jurisdiction. As an interpreter and fellow immigrants, they can support new resident families to pass through the adaptation period and expected emotional slump, creating unity amongst them in this beautiful land.

Chinese eat tangyuan on winter solstice day. However, the process of making and eating Vietnamese tangyuan is quite different from that of Chinese customs. The Vietnamese custom is to eat cold food during the Cold Food Festival. They believe that it will balance the heat of summer and keep the body healthy. On the third of the third lunar month, almost every family will prepare tangyuan as the main offerings to worship gods and pray for the ancestors to bless their families.

Combining information on the Hakka rice crop and cultural experience activities by dividing the farm into several sections (paddy fields, vegetables, and fruit sessions, chicken and duck farming sessions, turf sessions, and indoor handcraft in the classroom). Mr. Liu Ming-fang, the owner, uses his childhood experience of playing in the fields to create farming activities for the children. The children planted rice seedlings and experienced the fun of catching fish in the fields. These prepared lessons equip children to grow organic vegetables and fruit for themselves and experience the simplicity of farm life. New immigrants were invited to walk outdoors with their family members to participate in the activity as well as to enhance the parent-child relationship and momentarily relieve parents from the burden of child-care.

After new residents arrive in Taiwan, they spend traditional Chinese festivals with their spouse’s family. However, the festivals of their home country are quite different from those of Taiwan. To help the next generation (as well as the family members of new residents) understand the traditional festivals and cultures of the residents’ new homeland, we organize this event so that the new residents can spend the Lantern Festival with their fellow citizens in Taiwan, even though they are far from home, missing the festivals of their own culture.
