HESS Educational Foundation

The HESS Educational Foundation was established in 1998 with the aim of providing better educational opportunities for Taiwan’s underprivileged, disadvantaged, and indigenous children. Our dedicated HESS and local university volunteers have enabled us to conduct free annual English summer camps for children in various remote areas.

Our foundation strives to be a positive source of hope and energy for society by providing educational subsidies to families in need, putting on reading and study lectures at HESS bookstores, and organizing family-friendly mountain hikes in Taiwan’s beautiful mountain ranges.

Get Involved!
  • You can make a difference by volunteering in activities such as helping teach children with special needs, leading camps for aboriginal students, and co-teaching classes for orphans and children from underprivileged families. Why not try leading or participating in school and countrywide donation drives for Christmas presents, or joining school groups in mountain hiking excursions?

  • We have been fulfilling our mission of providing educational enrichment with the help of native-speaking university students and native English teachers like you!

Teaching and curriculum development go hand-in-hand at HESS.

We started the HESS Publishing Company in 1987 to produce a variety of educational materials for learners of all ages.

All of our materials are created in-house, ensuring the most comprehensive and effective learning experience for students.

To maintain the highest standard of quality, HESS Publishing collaborates with our team of professional, multinational writers and editors at the HESS Educational Research Department. Our extensive catalog of published titles, educational materials, and curricula are used by public and private educational institutions throughout Asia.

Reading goes hand-in-hand with education.

We opened our first HESS Bookstore in 1990 to provide readers with a wealth of educational, family, health, and children’s books. We also carry an extensive selection of periodicals; books in Chinese, English, and Japanese; as well as stationery for all types of interests and age groups.

Public educational seminars and author book talks are often held at our various HESS Bookstores, as well as our Family Reading Club, which promotes education through reading for the whole family.

HESS Bookstores are proud to be associated with retail outlets, such as the National Palace Museum Gift Shop.
