2014-10-08 First ACC kids at University


Four ACC kids are now attending university in Taiwan. They have been living in ACC since they were ten years old as part of the first group of kids adopted by ACC. Like many other kids, they are extremely talented and fluent in Chinese mandarin. With the support from a Taiwanese university, Ah Shi, Ah Guan, Ah Long and Ah Di have began a new chapter in their lives. 

The affiliation started when these four kids were in Taiwan for the annual cultural exchange tour and met the principal of the university who invited them to study in the school through their scholarship. 

Even in Taiwan, the kids continued the routine which they followed at ACC – waking up at six o’clock every morning, followed by chanting and meditation. As the university is not far from the city centre, they also started exploring the city and often surprise the locals by speaking fluent Chinese Mandarin.

When asked about this new chapter, they show their gratitude towards those who made this possible for them, and they hope that one day they can use their skills to help people in need in their home country, Malawi.
