ESSC 2023 Semi-final

story thumbnail
10 teams participated to the ESSC 2023 semi-final at Taipei-tech University in Taipei.
We were thrilled to see very divers projects, related to aging population, animal protection, environment, recycling – all very important subjects to enhance our communities.
This year the semi-final was more special as, apart from presenting their projects the students had the opportunity to get more support to improve their presentations and their projects.
First Calvin Chen from Taipei Tech explained how to improve their presentations skills in a small training session. Then the students were divided in two groups and get specific feedback on the content and the form. Many thanks to all the judges -coaches for their contributions!
The judges had a very hard time to eliminate projects, so we decided to invite all the 10 to join the final. We are certain that the feedback that their received from the coaches, alongside the further training that is planned will help the students to enhance even more their projects.
Thanks again to all the sponsors, which allow us to have not only great cash prizes but also opportunities for scholarships and internships!
All the best to all the 10 teams for the last preparations and see you on April 29th!

RCT’s Remote Online English Education Project links Taipei European School (TES) and Asia America International Academy (AAIA) with elementary schools in Pintung.
The junior mentors and young learners finally met face to face for the first time at the Meet & Greet in Pingtung last Friday after two years of Covid closure.
It was a long trip full of excitement and fulfillment. We were deeply touched when seeing the smiles of the students.
Helping others makes you feel more useful and happier!

Sanzhi Elementary School - Anti-Drug

story thumbnail
IPP Andy, Rtn. Tea and Rtn. Tudor joined the CTBC Anti-drug Foundation and the DEA Basketball team to visit the Sanzhi Elementary School and introduce to the young kids, our future leaders, the dangers of doing drugs.
It was really impressive to listen to Andy's very powerful presentation. The key was not only to send the message, and ensure the kids where 100% tuned to it, but to make the kids think by themselves and help them to act right. For example, Andy gave them great ideas of how to answer when someone offer them drugs.
After the presentation we went to the kids to the gymnasium and the DEA Basketball team taught them some moves and played. Some of the quizzes were incorporated to the games to try to have a lasting impact!
Very meaningful program that we will continue to support!

Rotary Story 07/28

Posted by BUILDING Liao
story thumbnail
This year, out of the initiative of P Museum, RC Taipei has organized a 5-minute "Rotary Story" session at each weekly luncheon to briefly introduce a topic on Rotary History. Welcome to check out the presented files and discover Rotary through time!
This week topic was presented by PP Building (Dennis Liao) on The History of Rotary in Taiwan.
We learned that the first Rotary Club in Taiwan was actually the The Rotary Club of Taihoku chartered in 1931. Together with some other clubs they stopped functioning in 1945 when the Japanese left Taiwan 
Our club, RCT was the First Rotary Club after WWII. It was chartered on October 9, 1948 (by help of RC Kunming) with 33 members. Charter president is C.K. Yen, past president of Republic of China (Taiwan).

Our project is structured in a continuous learning mode
The conexion is built around the RCT Website where Students can connect and deliver/receive classes. We have created automated processes to ensure attendance and correct connection between mentors and students
What counts are the children, to give them an opportunity to grow!
For the mentors, it is also a great opportunity to experience that they can make the difference in the life of others!

Dr. T.F. Chen Introduction

story thumbnail
Dr. T. F. Chen is a painter, writer, philosopher, visionary, and initiator of "Neo-Iconography" in painting. 
Born in Taiwan and educated in France, Dr. Chen was the 1st Asian scholar to earn a Ph. D in Art History from La Sorbonne, where he established “Five-Dimensional World Culture” in theory (1969) and initiated “Neo-Iconography” in painting
Dr. Chen presented the extent of his artwork and explained his inspiration.
Neo-Iconography is a daring new form of communication. It unites East and West, past and present, by organizing and combining familiar “icons” in unfamiliar ways.
Like a passionate art collector, Dr. Chen assembles images he treasures and places them together an eclectic composition, which may be startling, puzzling, joyful, sorrowful or humorous.
“Neo-I” is a daring form of art because it challenges both the artist and the viewer to accept new meanings for established images. Each painting has a visual impact with a philosophical underpinning.

Rotary Club of Taipei Installation for the new Rotary Year 2021-22

story thumbnail
On July 2nd 2021 the Rotary Club of Taipei conducted the installation of the new team, led by President Andy!
We had a large virtual audience which demonstrated that the unshakable spirit of Rotarians will not be diminished by these troubled times of pandemic. It is precisely this Rotarian resilience . . . this ability to adapt and continue with our service, even in the face of adversity, that makes us all to be so very proud to be a Rotarian.
P Andy measured the challenges of our tasks ahead while expressing the confidence in the team and recognizing the success of the years past: 
"I am confident because IPP Philip and his team have left me a Rotary Club that is functioning like a well-tuned engine.  Our accounting practices are balanced and more streamlined, our membership has grown enormously, our service projects have been fine-tuned and this is due to IPP Philip’s care, diligence, and stewardship . . and mostly, this is due to his leadership. Thank you IPP Philip.  I am truly grateful. The other reason I am comforted is because I have a team of expert and dedicated Past Presidents and fellow Rotarians who will advise me, prop me up, and ensure my success.  For my success is the club’s success.  I’m ready to jump out that proverbial “door” as long as I know you, my 2021-22 team . . . That you, my Past Presidents, and fellow Rotarians are there to catch me."
P Andy encouraged us all to continue to be as true Rotarians, people of action": "I learned that a key strength of Rotary is that we are “movers and shakers.”  We are a network of diverse and accomplished professionals and “people of action.”  Our action is realized through service. I hope I can be a role model and a “person of action.”

Recap RY2020-21

Members of RCT want to express our deep appreciation and thankfulness to our beloved IPP Philip Liang, for leading our club to rejuvenate in the Rotary year 2020~21, which will remain in our good memory for long.
IPP Philip is a Rotarian with seniority, yet ready to adopt new ideas. He is a well educated person, full of experience and wisdom, willing to dedicate his time and personal financial resources to serve the club, the members and communities globally. During this Rotary year, we encountered and suffered a major epidemic in history, but our fellowship and enthusiasm for service had not been affected at all. Our membership number had a net growth of 18.5% or 12 persons, our fundraising achieved the budgeted target, our service projects domestically and globally had accomplished more than what we planned.
In addition to his leadership, this year's success is also attributed to his good use of people. He appointed a secretary, PP Building, who is a senior, and experienced Rotarian, willing to contribute his efforts and time, to manage the heavy club business. Philip also appointed a club treasurer, famous accountant graduated from overseas university, to handle financial management, so that the Rotary Club's working capital flow was sufficient, and the service was carried out even better than the predetermined plans without any financial difficulties. We are also very grateful to his secretary PP Building, Club Treasurer Aaron Wu, and his entire team and committees for their unrelenting cooperation in club affairs and various services.
Thank you all, for a wonderful year in Rotary which will be remembered for a long long time.

RCT sends masks to East Timor

story thumbnail
When a disastrous flood struck East Timor over the Easter Weekend, the timing could hardly be worse. The small nation of 1.3 million to Australia’s north was experiencing a peak in COVID-19 cases, at a time when the flooding in the capital Dili left important medical supplies destroyed.
Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Dili put out the call to Rotary districts in Australia for urgently needed supplies - a message which reached Australia’s Deputy Representative in Taipei, Rotarian Brent Moore.
The Rotary Club of Taipei International Service Committee quickly came up with a plan to donate 80,000 protective face masks. Within days, production had commenced at Taoyuan manufacturer CoreBio.
Air freighting the cargo to Dili during a pandemic would still prove to be a major challenge - a problem solved through the generous support of Rotarian Antoine Bouin and his professional team at DB Schenker Taiwan.
This week the masks were released by East Timor customs, and will be donated to the Ministry of Health for urgent distribution to those most in need.
Special thanks to Rtn Brent for bringing up the request, Rtn Jason for finding the budget within Service Projects Committee, President Philip and the board members for their unanimous support, Rtn Antoine for sorting out the logistics and Rtn Frank for providing valuable advice to make it happen!

Real Happiness Is Helping Others - Recap of the Taitung Project Trip

It was my greatest honor and pleasure to serving as chair for the Taitung Service Project. This was truly a tremendous journey filled with rewarding and meaningful experiences.
First and foremost, I’d like to send my sincerest gratitude to Ms. JinHua Wang (汪金花) from the TFCA (台灣安心家庭關懷協會). Her unwavering dedication to the children on a daily basis is nothing short of heroic. She has a heart of gold which she shares with the children through each interaction. Long evenings at the school, facilitating the food bank, working with the parents through difficult times and being the consistent adult in these kids lives. Her acts are what make a difference at TFCA. She has believed in RCT for many years and consistently hosts our team of mentors.
I would like to recognize PP Jason for staying dedicated to this project for many years with humility and graciousness. A special thanks goes to President Philip and our excellent team members for joining us and supporting activities as mentors: PP Jason, Renzo’s family, Hans, Frank, PP Hydraulic’s Family, PP Stephen’s Family, Alex, Nancy, Maggie, Frances. All of you certainly do have the magic touch when mentoring the kids!
In addition to the members mentioned above, I’d like to recognize our excellent Rotaractors who were experts at leading the many children’s activities. They consistently play the part as big brothers and sisters to the children each year. Miss Elda’s art class helped the kids to release their potential and creativity, both fundamentally important for young children. The brilliant Chef Albert with his team of sous-chefs conducted an informative, healthy and interesting cooking class. It not only fed the kids stomachs, but also their minds with inspiration.
Spending only two days with the children may not seem like it could accomplish much. But we know that our mentorship is meaningful and well received by the children each year. Sewing the seeds of passion and love in their hearts is our mission. Being a part of their lives is our commitment for years to come via this local project.

From May 30th to June 1st, 2019, the RCT welcomed in Taipei a group of 28 kids from Tung-Shih Elementary School of Chiayi with 6 teachers accompanying them. These kids are living in underprivileged condition, and as part of the mission of the RI, the Club was proud to make this happen. 

Kids got training sessions on AI and VR with some professionals in that field, and also with the help of Taipei Municipal Yongchun Senior High School (台北市立永春高中). They also received training from Carrefour Taipei, and the restaurant La Mole, so that there were given exposure to various fields. The purpose was to open their mind on real-life industry and work. We hope this kind of event is beneficial to those kids coming from rural areas. 

Special thanks to the principal and teachers of Tung-Shih Elementary School of Chiayi, the Taipei Municipal Yongchun Senior High School, Carrefour Taiwan, Miramar Entertainment Park, Just Eat restaurant, and all Rotarians who have kindly sponsored the event (David Hall, PP Roadrunner – Coco Ichibanya -, Alex – La Mole restaurant) and also who have given of their time to come to the event. Thanks to Claudine Kuo also (Vendome’s firm) for her coordination of the whole event.

On May 10, we had a big group of 23 including President Mark Wang from our sister club RC Singapore visiting the National Palace Museum for the Maestro Chang Dai-Chien’s Art 張大千120歲誕辰紀念大展.  It was such a great honor to have Ms. Tseng Shu-Yun 曾淑芸 as our docent again.
We started with the painting and calligraphy of Maestro’s early years and works of his family, teachers and friends. Ms. Tseng shared some interesting stories of Chang’s imitation of ancient works, then explained the styles and differences between works by Chang and those ancient masters.
Ms. Tseng also led us to Chang’s colorful Buddhist art works inspired by the wall paintings in Dunhuang 敦煌 caves and explained their amazing details.
We then switched to the Chang’s stunning Masterpieces in ink and color on lotus and landscape.  We were all amazed by the “trademark” of Chang’s art on “splashed color” skills. Enlightened by Ms. Tseng we were able to tell the big change of Chang’s composition on paintings after his eye disease.
After this 100 minutes tour, we extended our heart-felt thanks to Ms. Tseng for her dedicated service with a special gift set from Rtn Nancy’s tea shop. With a background in history profession at NTU, Ms. Tseng dedicated 20 years of voluntary service in the National Palace Museum as a docent. It was truly an enjoyable and informative museum tour!

It was such a fun day out with fellow Rotarians, friends and family. Many of us are visiting the tea garden for the first time in Taiwan. We have learned more about the type of tea tree known as camellia sinensis in general. Emei town specialized in Oriental Beauty Oolong tea and we tasted three different grades and it was very different, and it's all because of a magically little bug. We also got to experience tea making first hand, through this experience, we get to understand the hardwork and the craftsmanship of making tea. After yummy traditional Hakka family-style lunch, we walked around Emei lake and visited the world's largest Happy Budda. We finished the trip with more tea making.
To sum up, it was a wonderful experience, and hope all of our fellow Rotarians can join us on our next trip!

International Service - Kenya and Madagascar

Posted by PP Braces on Mar 14, 2019
story thumbnail
On Jan. 31, 2019, PP Braces and a group of 13 dental volunteers, dispatched for Ivato, Madagascar for dental voluntter service.
There were 6 dentists and 7 assistants. 2 dentists are also rotarians form other clubs.

The group was able to treat  368 patients with 540 extractions, 16 cleaning and 88 cavities filled.
Madagascar is a country with dramastic demand in healhcare service, esp. in dentistry. people with a average income of USD 1.25 per day, could hardly afford to visit a dentist. It was estimated that there was less than 500 dentists in a population 24 million.
There were 2 prices for extraction - one with anesthesia and the other one without anesthesia. Please imagine how suffering to have tooth removed without anesthesia.

Madagascar, former colony of France, became independent on June 26, 1960. The island is 18 times of Taiwan, but the population is only 1 million more than Taiwan. So it is lessly populated.  The capital is Antananarivo and the common languagage is French and Malagasy. The most attractive product is Vanilla.

In our service , we were able to spot a 2 months old girl with Cleft Lip. We came to know the the HIS foundation from Hong Kong will send as operation team going to Madagascar for volunteer  surgery for a yearly base. We could have the baby put on waitlist once she has achieved the critierion for surgical repair. But the family has to pay for the transporation from the province to the capital, living cost for one week and the medicine. It was estimated to be USD 55.  so , PP Braces donated USD 500 from the International Service fund of our club for the benefit of other cleft patients for surgery.

By RCT Spouse Committee Chair / Christine Lee
To show our care about the humanitarian aid before the International Woman’s Day, the RC Taipei spouse committee organized a service event to Harmony Home Taiwan on February 27.  Harmony Home Taiwan is now a healthcare and shelter which takes care over 150 non-Taiwanese children and their mothers from unlawful residents like migrant workers with various difficulties.
After a pre-visit to the site, we decided to serve by bringing along a children’s program for 1-3 years old kids which they have NEVER had such an experience before in that small room.
It began with a video briefing of Harmony Home at 10am and a warm greeting from the founder Ms. Nicole Yang. We donated 8 big cans of formula milk for children before starting our shelter service.
Lucky us a kindergarten principal Ms. Lee Ju-Nan 李如男 came to lead the children program.  At first most kids came asking for the big hugs. Some of them were still in bed. After a few games they all went crazy and were running around with laughters and happy faces. At the end we gave our special thanks to Ms. Principal for her kind contributions then helped with the lunch-serving. Before leaving we spent some time with the cute little infants upstairs.
It was such a heart-warming and meaningful event. We’d like to come back again and make it as a regular service if possible.
Hopefully RC Taipei can do something more or different on this issue in the future.

We took the walk to the nearby mountain trails to witness the hot spring sources and a 110 year old temple in the morning. It was well worth the early getup on Sunday!
Then we had the tasty meals and drinks prepared by the Spring Resort Hotel in the private room arranged by hotel owner, a great friend from Eternity. Each of the members gave very warm and meaningful story regarding Rotary life during  lunch, that was the best moment the whole day! 
Most members enjoyed the hot spring SPA after the lunch - it's the best activity in winter times!
