Edx Education has partnered with the Zhi-Shan Foundation to sponsor a mobile kindergarten to provide early childhood education for children in the remote Atayal tribe villages in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. The mobile kindergarten is named “Mountain Elf”, and its colourful design was created by the Atayal artist Mi Lu Hayong. The concept is “Sharing Love”.
The foundation supports elementary school and kindergarten students so they receive adequate education and care in indigenous communities. The villages are widely spread, meaning it is hard to find the best location for all the young children, so the mobile kindergarten was created.
With funding from Edx Education, they now not only bring educational toys and books with teachers and social workers, by they provide cultural courses, a toy library service, and also refer kids to early intervention services if needed, at more than 12 locations in the mountains near Hsinchu County.
