How one international partnership has made us stronger
Celebrating 10 years of success working with Taiwan Fund for Children and Families
By Jim Carrie, VP, global operations
Something special about CCFC is our relationship with our international partners, such as the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families (TFCF).
Initially founded in 1950 by Christian Children’s Fund (U.S.A.) to assist orphaned children in Taiwan, TFCF has emerged to be both a leading national organization committed to addressing issues of child and family poverty in Taiwan and an international organization with branch offices in five countries.
The non-governmental agency recently celebrated “65 years of happiness,” having seen more than 500,000 lives transformed and one-million children and adults benefiting through their programs nationally and internationally.
This team is a valued partner for CCFC, having supported our sponsorship funded programs in Paraguay, Nicaragua, and most recently in Ghana, since 2007. They have faithfully fulfilled their commitments to the children and families we serve.
Energetic, engaged, highly professional, vitally committed — these are just some of the keywords that have come to mind as I have worked with my Taiwanese colleagues. I wish them much continued success and thank them for all they do to contribute to our shared mission of helping children reach their full potential.
