Mission

MISSION:

The mission of Handful of Sapphires is to provide Taiwan-based volunteers with a portal site on how to create a positive social impact in their community. We take people back to the fundamentals – seeing problems not as “tweeted” or “reported on” but firsthand – then being able to get involved, make a difference, and realize the potential power of impact of an individual can have.

DESCRIPTION:

We provide volunteers, targeting those who might not speak or read Hanzhi or Hanyu, with various opportunities get proactively involved with local non-profit organizations and groups. We also aim to become a source for these organizations to rally awareness on their cause and send helping hands their way.

Handful of Sapphires also provides Taiwan-based NPO/NGO and groups with general consulting services.

Focus will be primarily on the following categories in Taiwan:

  1. Animal Welfare
  2. Socially marginalized youths and adults
  3. Indigenous Populations (Native Taiwanese)
  4. Art/Culture
  5. Environment/Green/Sustainable Living

This site also strives to bring to you activism events around the island which you may participate in and get to know more people.
