In 2008, The Foundation Historic City Conservation and Regeneration started the charity event U(Old House New LifeU through civil society. We promote supporting the excellent old house regeneration. It attracted lots of attention and resonated with the public. The U(Old House New LifeU has become more and more visible in few years. The old town of Tainan which were on the decline got the recognization and confidence back by public participation. The event U(Old House New LifeU will reach its 10 years anniversary by 2018. Therefore, we arrange a series of projects to celebrate it, including the international volunteering camp. At our 10 years ofU(Old House New LifeU anniversary, FHCCR would like to work with a university NCKU to bring some old houses back to life. The repairing of the houses will be complete by the international volunteers under the instruction of FHCCR. The work includes building reconstruction, indoor tidy, yard maintaining, etc. We hope that by the end of this camp, the repairing can bring not only a new life to the old buildings, but also show the value of volunteering.This project requires the work of the international volunteers, Vision YouthAction (VYA), Non-Governmental Organization (FHCCR) and the academic unit (NCKU).
