Nan-Hwa Project is a program for disadvantaged children through the cooperation of National Dong Hwa University and Nan Hua Elementary School since the academic year of 2004. During this 8-year period of time, the student participants from Dong Hwa have committed themselves to one-year service to accompany the children of Nan Hua for one hour per week without any compensation. The major principles for building this companionship are twofold: 1) commitment, with an insistence on consistency in meeting time and place; and 2) being together, by putting forth efforts to understand the children’s world and to be side by side with them. The purpose of this 3-year study is to explore the essential operations of Nan-Hwa Project and to respond to the National Science Council’s call for studies on Humanity Images and Innovative Social Actions. This study proposes that Nan-Hwa Project contains various ways “other than professional” that provide fruitful phenomena for study in order to develop new root metaphors and innovative social actions for psychological practices in Taiwan.
