which creates amazing momentum for traditional culture/art, education, and sustainability of tribal groups
Having motivated Taiwan's industrial development with its motors for half a century, TECO has put its weight behind the nation's sci-tech R&D and innovation with the setup of the foundation 20 years ago, pushing the formation of a humanistic society in the sci-tech era and creativity education for strengthened competitiveness, on top of "Exclamation" educational plan, which aims to help aboriginal tribes achieve sustainable development. "The Exclamation" plan rallies NPO (nonprofit organizations), enterprises, and individuals in forming a strategic alliance, sets up a supportive platform balancing supply and demand, and soliciting sponsors to fund, oversee, and assist tribal development, on the root of "culture," the pillar of "education," the foundation of "human," and mainstay of "tribes," forming a custom educational program meant to help with cultivation and development of aboriginal youth's inherent talent, the inheritance and regeneration of tribal culture and art, the growth of knowledge and craftsmanship, and enhancement of competitiveness. Up to 2013, the program had offered long-term support and service to 15,000 children from 10 tribes, in addition to supporting 40 teams in the fields of folk song, dance, craftsmanship, talent, and physical strength, creating amazing momentum for traditional culture/art, educational achievement, and tribal sustainability, reasons for selection of "Exclamation" as its title.
