綠光國際基金會簡介

"綠光國際基金會" 是經由美國國稅局核准,於2014年在美國馬利蘭州成立的公益基金會。綠光國際基金會成立的目的是為支持台灣 "綠光種子教室", 一個為台灣弱勢家庭兒童設置的課後輔導計劃。

台灣“綠光種子教室”成立於2009年,原附設在台灣愛鄰協會竹苗區辦公室(*目前已改為新竹縣愛鄰社區關懐協會),特定為竹苗地區弱勢家庭學童所設立的免費安親課輔服務。這些學童來自隔代教養、單親、失親、原住民、外籍配偶、中低收入戶(清寒) 、以及急難家庭等,目前台灣地區在這樣環境成長的小孩約有16萬人。

自從綠光教室成立以來,由一個地點擴展到三個地點,小朋友的人數從4人增加到今天(2014) 的110人。由於這些孩童在接受綠光老師的教導後,在課業、情緒、和品格上都有顯著的進步,各地小學對設立綠光教室的需求愈來愈大。“新竹縣愛鄰社區關懐協會” 看見這廣大的需要,期望結合社會愛心資源,在更多的鄉鎮設立課輔教室,長期性的關心孩童學業和品格。使這些孩童將來都能成為國家的好國民, 身心靈健全,為社會帶來祝福。

我們熱切希望,在美國的親戚朋友,亦能定期或一次的捐款,支持綠光種子教室計劃。捐款時請用支票寄到下列名稱和地址:

Green Light International, Inc.
P.O. Box 83516
Gaithersburg, MD 20883-3516

我們收到捐献後會定期寄給您相關的報告及孩童成長的小故事,並在每年一月寄發免稅收據 (*如果須要在每次捐献後立即寄送收據者請在支票上註明),我們也請您把這個需要傳遞給您的親友。

Introduction to Green Light International, Inc.

Established in 2014, Green Light International, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which was formed to support the Green Light After-School Program, a program founded in 2009 by Hsin-Chu I-Link Community Services Association (新竹縣愛鄰社區關懐協會) in Hsin-Chu County, Taiwan.

The Green Light After-School Program provides free after-school tutoring and spiritual support to elementary school children who come from low income families in countryside Taiwan. The parents in the poor families typically lack the proper educational resources for their children, and their children often fail classes in school. Without proper academic help and spiritual support, children from these families may not be able to overcome many difficulties before them.

Studies indicate that the income gap between the rich and the poor in Taiwan has widened in recent years and consequently, the number of children in need of after-school tutoring has increased. Despite the growth of Green Light classes, the demand for new classes continues to rise; many principals from local schools have asked the Hsin-Chu I-Link Association to facilitate more classes to help students in need. As a result, the Association envisions expanding its operations to meet the demand and hopes to gather more resources in furtherance of this vision.

Green Light International, Inc. sincerely hopes that friends and relatives in the United States will support Green Light After-School Program through donations made via Green Light International, Inc.
