Meet your host at Shandao Temple MRT Station, Exit 5 (Blue Line) - Taipei, Taiwan,
Event Telah Berakhir
Two-hour Sweet Potato Mama Project Experience
Your Taipei tour will start by taking you to the base of the Sweet Potato Mama industry, the warehouse. You’ll learn about the Sweet Potato Mama Program and the equipment that these women use every day in their business. The program is run by the Genesis Social Welfare Foundation, a well-known support organisation in Taiwan that runs care facilities for underprivileged vegetative patients, as well as community welfare initiatives. By providing the space, training, and equipment needed, the foundation helps Sweet Potato Mamas to start their own businesses.
The foundation also provides the first bag of sweet potatoes to the women free of charge, to help get the business going. Thanks to receiving these necessities, these Mamas can typically start their own business within as little as one week. After the warehouse visit, you are going to see how they work, helping them to sell sweet potatoes. Between noon and 13:00 is break time for the people who work in this area — but it’s peak hour for the Sweet Potato Mamas. You’ll learn from them and help them to sell sweet potatoes right on the street, and have the opportunity to interact with all the locals who stop by. Once your shift is over, you’ll be treated to a sweet potato roasted by a Mama herself — a great snack after all your hard work.
