In Taiwan, senior citizens accounted for 12.4% of the country¡¯s population at the end of 2015 and expected to reach 20% by 2025. Hondao Senior Citizen¡¯s Welfare Foundation (Hondao) was founded in 1995 and aims to let seniors in Taiwan live happy, safe, and dignified lives in their own homes and communities. The foundation committed to promoting filial piety and encouraging everyone to take care of one¡¯s own aged parents and then to extend the same care to the aged people in general. Its programs center around three core values: Filial Piety, Community Care, and Dream Never Gets Old. Guting Village located in Zhuangwei Township of Yilan County is a small and beautiful rural village with plenty checkerboard of paddy fields. In order to awake more and more home and aboard young people¡¯s concern and action about Taiwan aged care issue, and let them know more about Taiwan¡¯s local culture. Hondao and Guting Community Development Association (GCDA) organize the 2nd Guting International WorkCamp in 2017. The work scopes and purpose include (1) to do elderly caring through variety activities and service, (2) to do community service to beautify its public environment and build the traditional Grain storage kiosk (3) do cultural exchange for bringing international cultural into this rural area and learning about local cultural in Taiwan.
