2. Summary of Our Project
Cih-Sheng, a home for people with disabilities and mentally challenged children, is located in Changhua City. For those people who live in there, Cih-Sheng is like a big family where they can find love and care. Through the education in Cih-Sheng, they have a chance to develop their potential, so they can learn how to live independently and make a living on their own in the future. Furthermore, many people give their help and donate necessities and money to them. These kind-hearted people really help and encourage them a lot. In our project, we want to introduce Cih-Sheng so that more people around the world can know the place of love and warmth in Taiwan.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The first problem is the making of the project website. We learned to make our project website by asking our teachers and practicing a lot. The second problem is the translation of our project into English. Since English is not our native, we had problem translating our website. However, with the help of the dictionary and our teachers, we finally made it.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Learn to love, love to learn. When we first met the students with disability in Cih-Sheng, we were shocked. However, after being together with them for hours, we found them nice and kind. In the process, we learn to share love with everyone. Moreover, we learn to cherish what we have owned.

In our project, we visited Cih-Sheng and helped students there. We learned to work with others, to love people around us and to cherish what we have owned. Moreover, we used technological tools to make our project website, and the use of the Internet was a great help when we needed to search for information.
