Global Networking Establishment

Global Networking Establishment 

TFCF believes that the completion of all SDGs implementation projects cannot be achieved by TFCF alone. To maximize synergy, it is necessary for nations and organizations to work side by side and join hands to tide over the difficulties we faced during the implementation of international services. We organized Taiwan’s college and university students to form professional volunteer teams to provide project services with our overseas branch offices; recruit domestic youth to form international working teams to engage in voluntary services overseas. All together we hope these projects can allow youths to interact and communicate with people from different countries.

In addition, the participation of TFCF for various cooperative assistance around the world is becoming more and more far-reaching, including project cooperation with different countries and organizations, and humanitarian assistance in major disasters.

We have also cooperated with international non-profit organizations (INGOs) from the world through various training, international conferences, and seminars, as well as our own international interaction activities. We strive to expand the partnership of TFCF in the world, ting up Taiwan and international society. We wish that TFCF can act as an INGOs exchange platform in integrating love and resources from all over the world. Through the close partnership between INGOs, we are striving to maintain the SDGs to provide children a suitable environment to grow up in.
