King Car Cultural & Educational Foundation was established in 1980 based on the King Car
Group’s philosophy of sustainable operation “receiving from society, using for society.
” Since its establishment, the foundation set its mission to promote social welfare and innovative
educational services in response to world trends. Currently, the foundation is hoping to cultivate
educational services based on the core objective of advancing social welfare, reading education, art
education, and literature promotion, and to connect with the international community. Putting our
philosophy on education into action, the foundation is devoted to the mission of cultivating world
citizens with life-long learning habits and aesthetic taste.
Training Taiwanese youth volunteers, building bridges to overseas
resources, and working in rural Taiwan. Enriching learning
resources and keeping children company as they grow. Promoting international
education for children and youth. Cultivating a global perspective in schoolchildren
and using local action to cultivate world citizens.
In an era when reading has taken on diverse perspectives,
the foundation uses life education, musical performance,
and ecological experience to teach the public how to enjoy reading with their
five senses. The foundation promotes local reading events and invites experts
to lead tours of the historical residences of influential people, architectural heritage
sites, and independent bookstores. The tours enliven historical memory and explore
stories hidden in city corners, so that participants can truly feel the local culture.
In 2008, King Car established its art center, which includes the Nanjing,
Chengde, and Yuanshan branches. The goal is to support local art and encourage
creativity in youth. King Car provides a stage for youth to express their artistic
nature, in the hope of helping the younger generation grow.
The objectives of King Car Art Center are to enrich the literary standards
of the public and to cultivate writing talent. It holds various literature-related
competitions, lectures, and creative courses. King Car also provides prize money
and publication opportunities with the aim of discovering outstanding writers. The
company hopes to use literature to expand people’s horizons and give them a brighter future.
