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. Together we hope these projects can allow youths to interact and communicate with people from different countries.

In addition, the participation of TFCF in 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 INGO 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 with a suitable environment to grow up in.


International Cooperation

※ Turkey-Syria Earthquake (2023)

On February 6th at 4:17 a.m., the #TurkeySyriaEarthquake struck with its epicenter located in Turkey. However, this earthquake also heavily impacted neighboring #Syria, which is often overlooked by the media and the public as a region affected by earthquakes. The province of #Aleppo, Syria was hit the hardest, with over 40 buildings collapsing during the quake. Due to the lack of search and rescue equipment and external resources, the number of casualties continues to rise.

Therefore, we are partnering with the Italian NGO WeWorld Onlus (a member of the Childfund Alliance) to distribute essential items such as mattresses, blankets, hygiene products, sanitary clothing, and baby items to shelters in the most severely affected province of Aleppo. We are also arranging water trucks to supply water in areas where primary water resources are not accessible due to damaged infrastructure, ensuring that the basic survival needs of the population can be met. We will continue to stay in touch with WeWorld Onlus and evaluate the need for further mid-to-long-term assistance based on the situation.
