Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Being high school students, even with such an amount of money, we realize that our powers and resources are limited. We have time and ability constraints. So it took us quite a while to come up with something big enough to make a difference but definitely probable.

In the end, we came up with something we all agreed to work on. Because we have realized that this network has not exactly reached its targeted group, so we thought we could use this money to do exactly that.

We want to sponsor an exchange program between our school and schools in Africa. Kids from Africa will come here and learn about Taiwanese lifestyle. In the meantime, we will also introduce them to evoke, and hopefully when they go back, they will spread the message and this network’s goal will be achieved fully.

And of course, kids from our school will go to Africa. In additional to learning about African lifestyle, we can also see what has been and still needs to be done. We believe this project will benefit both sides greatly and we can gain lots of precious experiences.

This may seems small but it is just the beginning. We hope that our spark will carry out and spread all over. And the change we have all been working for will finally come. We think that our project is definitely possible and worth supporting.

You forgot to say that Taiwan used to be a poor colony of Japan, which became a police state under martial law and eventually made a successful transition to democracy. Today, Taiwan is the only real democracy that has ever existed in the Chinese world and also enjoys a very high standard of living. Every country has corruption to some degree, but how many have a strong enough democracy to put their former president in jail?

When your parents were born, Taiwan's biggest export was pineapples. Then it became the world's largest exporter of umbrellas. When you were born, Taiwan was becoming one of the world's leading hi-tech manufacturing economies and even today most of the world's laptop computers and mobile phones are made in Taiwan. But Taiwan is moving away from manufacturing and becoming a centre in the knowledge economy. The current generation, including you, is highly educated and competitive in the globalised world.

Taiwan would be a great model for people in developing countries to learn from. You have achieved more in one generation than many countries have achieved in a century. It would be very inspirational for students to see what can be achieved with a little capital and a strong work ethic.

This is a great idea for an evokation, and I look forward to meeting whoever you bring to Taiwan.

Do you have any idea how you would choose the lucky students? Maybe your mentor (or the WBI) could help you contact schools in Africa?

Chengyaun High School, I must say that, your project is very, very interesting. There is no better way of learning about other cultures and sharing knowledge than the one you are suggesting.

I am from Uganda, East Africa and I would be more than Happy to connect you with High School Students here.

Please let me know of any developments.

On a separate note I wish to call up on all other African Agents help connect you as well.

Hi,

I'm from Zimbabwe, currently live in South Africa and have family and friends in Botswana and Namibia.

I would be happy to find schools /accomodation etc for an exchange over here.

Rotary have run youth exchanges for years, your local capter should be able to help you with information, advice and possibly funding as well. I suggest you contact them.

Anything else I can do please let me know.

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
