1. Description of Our Community
Yonghe was originally a part of Zhonghe. 'Yonghe' means 'eternal peace.' Do not underestimate this little Yonghe. It is one of the most densely populated urban townships. When you think of soymilk, Yonghe must be the first place coming up. Besides soymilk, there are many other well-known stories in Yonghe. Welcome to Yonghe!
2. Summary of Our Project
One of the most well known products from Younghe Township is Soymilk. One of the best places in Younghe Township for great food, great service, not to mention delicious Soymilk Products, is Yongxin Soymilk Cafe. In addition to food, good service, fair prices, the way it can be a sustainable business and customer’s best choice is particularly that Yongxin is one of the providers of “love breakfast” for Yonghe school districts. The “love breakfast” is provided for those who cannot afford breakfast. This is role model for others, and we hope many more “love breakfast” can be more widely spread.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We encountered some language and technical problems during the project. At the interview with the supervisor of Yonghe junior high school, we didn’t understand some Taiwanese he used, and we had to double check with him in Mandarin Chinese. And, we have few experiences on websites construction. So, we need to spend more time doing research and discussion, and fortunately, we can overcome these problems and have this nice outcome.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
In the beginning, we had no idea of where “love Breakfast” comes from? Through this project, we know that it is provided by Yongxin soymilk cafe. When we learned more about Mr. Lai’s stories; we feel we learn more through this project than from book. Failure is the mother of success; in this project, we really see it.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Through this project, we also learn much about expression and communication. Through this, we see the importance of respect and cooperation. Besides, we genuinely experience the connection between people and land; we can see how much people would care about where he or she lives. This, again, is really something that we can’t learn through books.
