GOALS FOR 2017 – 2018

 

Haxstrong is working on the following goals which will help us to better serve the international community in Taiwan. We welcome ideas and support from anyone who feels they can help us with achieving these goals.

1. BUILDING TEAMS AROUND TAIWAN

We are looking to build core teams in each city in Taiwan of around 4 to 6 people. The teams will consist of:

  • Response & Support Team
  • Fundraising Team

 

2. COMMUNITY RESOURCE DATABASE

Haxstrong is currently building a comprehensive database of resources and organizations that will benefit the international community in Taiwan. This will launch around the end of 2017. People will also be able to add any information they have found that may be beneficial to others in the community.

 

3. MAKE CONNECTIONS & RAISE AWARENESS

Contact and meet various organizations, professional bodies, and knowledgeable & connected people in the community. E.g.

4. MEMBERSHIP & DONATIONS

Haxstrong is looking at a number of ways to raise funds for the running of the charity from private individuals and corporate sponsorship.

 

5. COMMUNITY CENTERS

We are planning to open drop-in centers in Kaohsiung first and then later in Taichung. These locations will provide us with a physical space where we can meet people, discuss things openly or privately and offer advice and information.
