Amitofo Care Centre (ACC) is a Buddhist orphanage home dedicated to help Africa with Buddhism

2014-11-24 Lesotho's ACC kids in Taiwan


22 ACC kids from Lesotho were in Taiwan for the annual cultural exchange tour and spent some time with local students. The ACC kids showcased their talents such as dancing and martial arts and also learnt a few things from the local students, such as traditional scribing.  

Head of ACC Lesotho, Emily Lu, said that ACC is a Buddhist orphanage home that currently has a presence in Lesotho, Malawi and Swaziland. Through the support of local communities and organisations, ACC take care of over 6000 kids with a focus on education and culture. All the kids can speak at least three languages (Chinese Mandarin, English and a local language), while learning Buddhist teachings and hobbies such as dancing, singing and martial art. Four kids from the first group of orphans at ACC are now studying in a Taiwanese university. For them, this is a dream come true because they would have never made it to university if they did not receive the support from ACC and all the generous and compassionate donors.
