Volunteering Taiwan was founded in 2001 as Representative Office of IAVE (International Association for Volunteer Effort) in Taiwan. Volunteering Taiwan aims to create a democratic society where it is free to exchange ideas, actions and resources between local and global voluntary organizations.
As serving the essential role in the global volunteer network, we connect Governments, NGOs, NPOs, and Business to work together for the social cause, strengthen communication with International society and promote global volunteering in Taiwan.
Volunteering Taiwan has actively allied with various domestic and international NGOs/NPOs to respond the social needs and led partner organizations to participate in relevant international events to show the inclusive force from Taiwan.
