To increase the ability of the new immigrants to express the cultural connotations and customs of their home country, the New Immigrant Family Service Center of Penghu specially planned a ‘Talent training program of multiculturalism’ for new immigrants.
Through the sharing of cultural experience and the promotion of multicultural values and characteristics, the community is able to have a deeper understanding of new immigrants’ home country. Moreover, participants would learn how to respect cultural differences and also build confidence through exhibiting their strengths.

New Immigrant Family Service Center of Penghu mentions that they received feedback and enthusiastic responses from the participants. The members cooked dishes by themselves and they enjoyed the whole process because hands-on experience is much more interesting than just listening to the sharing sessions.

Only when you actually do it, you will find that some steps require more attention so that they could further understand multiculturalism through exotic cuisines. It is hoped that more similar activities can be organized in the community in the future.
In addition, this activity allows the people in the community to learn about food and culture diversity, and most importantly multiculturalism. To learn more about activities and courses for new immigrants, please contact the ‘New Immigrant Family Service Center of Penghu’ fan page.
