Announcing Heart for Africa – Taiwan

We are very excited to announce the launch of Heart for Africa – Taiwan.  Last year, students from Taiwan traveled to Swaziland to serve with Heart for Africa along with their teacher, Mr. Lewis Lu.  The team of volunteers were a welcome addition to the volunteers from the US and Canada.

After returning home, Mr. Lu and others decided that to ensure a long term commitment to serving the children of Swaziland, they should start a charity.  And we are happy that they decided to partner with Heart for Africa – US in the formation of this charity.  Heart for Africa – Taiwan will work on fund raising projects throughout Taiwan to help improve the lives of the people of Swaziland.  This year Mr. Lu and his students will return to Swaziland for another service project.  In addition to Mr. Lu’s team, traveling with Heart for Africa – US are 13 students and teachers form the Catholic Dioceses of Taichung, Taiwan.

Working alongside Heart for Africa – Canada and Heart for Africa – US, the Taiwanese team are a welcomed addition to the Heart for Africa family.

IMG_8078Following last year’s launch of It’s Not Okay With Me in Chinese, Heart for Africa co-founder Janine Maxwell’s newest book, Is It Okay With You, was recently released in Chinese.  Janine and Ian Maxwell were in Taiwan for the launch.  The revenue from the sale of the book will help fund the mission trips of Taiwanese students to serve in Swaziland.  In response to the second book being made available in Chinese, Janine stated, “I’m so pleased to know that people throughout Taiwan and mainland China will have an opportunity to read the stories of so many that have decided it is not okay with them.  Together with volunteers from the United States and Canada, we all can make a marked improvement in the lives of the children of Swaziland and Kenya.”

Joining Janine and Ian at the press conference for the launch was a representative from the Ministry of Education, Taiwan.
