NGO Co-Learning School

【What People Are Saying】

“I learned a lot about politics and legislation. The facilitator was very experienced and shared valuable insights from both advocacy practice and event hosting.”

“I enjoyed the entire course! I hope the international exchange group will continue. Thanks Taiwan Rbels for offering such a great course!”

“The course content was very helpful. I think teamwork is really important for digital transformation in NGOs. I hope future courses will cover team communication and coordination skills.”

Taiwan Rebels Culture Movement is founded by a group of senior Taiwanese NGO members. We are deeply aware of the challenges faced by local NGOs in their operations. Therefore, we hope to assist in improving the management capabilities of Taiwanese NGOs through the "NGO Co-Learning School" program.

The "NGO Co-Learning School" is not just about "empowering" NGO workers. It also provides management information to NGO organizations through "accompaniment" and "co-learning" in the form of courses/workshops, experience sharing, and consensus building. It enriches NGO workers' imaginations for organizational and personal development, and promotes cross-domain dialogue between NGOs, business sectors, academic sectors, and physical and mental health sectors.

Our goal is to enable vibrant small and medium-sized NGOs to flourish and perpetuate, and to encourage more people to engage with NGOs that promote social progress in a more sustainable way.

2022-2023 Achievements

The Program, which we initiated and secured funding from the Open Society Foundations (OSF), officially launched in July 2022. In the same year, we conducted a survey on the operations and sustainability of Taiwanese NGOs, and hosted the first forum exploring "The Possibilities and Boundaries of NGO Business Models" at the end of the year.

In 2023, we held a total of 50 different types of co-learning courses and 2 forums. The topics covered organizational management, information security and digital transformation, marketing and fundraising, policy advocacy, international grants, vicarious trauma care and prevention, and anti-sexual harassment policies. A total of over 70 organizations participated.
