校園與社區服務學習:「有愛無礙芝山岩生態之旅」。

In order to allow disabled members of the community to personally experience the beauty of the Zhishan Cultural and Economic Garden, a group of 20 freshmen from the TKU Department of Banking and Finance woke up early on Saturday morning (April 28) to serve as “community volunteers”. They did so as part of the TKU service learning program, a prerequisite for all Tamkang freshmen.

The activity was organized by Access for All in Taiwan, a charity organization set up to service the disabled. The day’s schedule involved a trip to the Cultural and Economic Garden in Zhishan, where the TKU students helped the disabled participants to tour the magnificent gardens, by assisting in pushing wheelchairs, guiding the visually impaired, and helping when participants required assistance.

One of the participating freshmen, Liu Wei-chi, said that to ensure the students were able to fulfil their duties as volunteers and make the disabled feel comfortable in any of a number of surroundings or situations, Tamkang University especially organized for volunteer training classes prior to setting out. During the classes, students took turns in slowly wheeling fellow students up and down small hills in wheelchairs. The exercise was conducted to instil in students the need to care for fellow citizens and experience the joy of helping others.
