Missioner Responsible:

Tajonera, Joyalito F.

Maryknoll Ministry to Foreign Migrant workers and New Immigrants in Taiwan is in the Diocese of Taichung and Archdiocese of Taipei. The two Ugnayan centers and shelters serve and welcome all foreign migrant workers in Taiwan and provide the following services:

  • We reach out to the foreign migrant workers, the new immigrants, foreign spouses and their families.
  • We rent buildings for church, activities, training centers and shelters for foreign migrant workers.
  • We provide free educational training to help improve the job skills of the workers (electronic repairs, carpentry, dressmaking), basic Chinese language, leadership formation, lectures and seminars.
  • We partner and network with other church groups and NGO’s in doing advocacy for migrant workers’ rights and government agencies for trainings.

With your help, Father Joyalito Tajonera, M.M., can support these migrant workers.
