Jia-ling Tyan

Secretary General
Alishan Township Chashan Community Development Association in Chiayi County

After a typhoon hit Taiwan in 2009, the tribal crisis became clear: industrial disappearance, youth outflows, market chaos, and economic collapse. At that time, the southern part of Taiwan was sorrowful. Jia Ling was originally a young person working in the city, she saw her hometown destroyed. She believed that change requires the support of young people so she decided to volunteer in her hometown. Since 2011, she has established a mountain tribe service organisation that connects with universities to provide social services, develop friendly relationships, and create a sense of belonging. Today she continues to develop remote tribal industries by introducing vocational training resources to help the unemployed people obtain permits and promote employment opportunities.
