  According to the statistic the elderly population in Taiwan will be exceed 42% andsoon we will be one of the super- aged nation. Hondao Senior Citizen 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. Its programs center around three core values: Filial Piety, Community Care, and Dream Never Gets Old.

  In order to make more young people concern about the issue of elderly in Taiwan, Hondao and Houpi Community would like to deliver a warm welcome to youth from all over the world to Taiwan and participate into Houpi community as an International Work Camp.
