James Davis CC’18 received a WEP grant for the summer of 2017 to intern with the Taichung Social Affairs Bureau and Kuan-Lin Caring Association in Taiwan. He kindly shared some photos and insights from his exciting summer experience. If you are a CC or SEAS undergraduate student who receives financial aid, you may be eligible to apply for the Work Exemption Program, too! Learn more about the program on our site.
Here, James and his team met with a donor to the organization. They are at the best vegetarian restaurant in Taipei. The donor generously compensated voluteers who traveled between cities to gather data for their project.
James takes a break and hikes up the tallest mountain in Taipei … and makes some new friends!
James and his team traveled to Hualien, Taiwan to begin testing and revising their household survey. Working with a local community organization, 牛犁社區, they were able to compare villages to select for a universal basic pilot program in the future.
Thank you, James, for sharing your experience with us!
