TIG to recruit volunteers from all walks of life

TIG to recruit volunteers from all walks of life

A group of social workers from the Serve the People Association (SPA) formed the TIG volunteering group to serve more laborers in need, especially the migrant laborers who are dedicated to grass-roots work. The volunteers come from all walks of life, therapists, social workers, nurses and interior decorators gathering together to provide the help to migrant workers in Taiwan. SPA used to be an association which deals with labor disputes for the local laborers, however, some of the staff in the association hoped to broaden their field to migrant workers. Under this initial idea, their asylum center was opened this year and started to provide a safe place for those foreign spouses who suffered from domestic violence and abuse from their employers.

From a case of a Filipina worker, many volunteers jumped in and devoted their time and money unconditionally and they gradually became a volunteering group for the migrant worker’s case. Those volunteers worked together to reach out for more resources and help. When they planned to move from Yingge to Neili last year, they didn’t have enough funds for more rooms, but one of the volunteers introduced her friend who worked as a decoration worker, and he offered the help without hesitation, solving the living problem for the migrants and doing a great favor to the association.
