Strengthen marriage and family relationships, give kids colorful childhood
(Accompany children, connect relationships among family members)
It has been a long time; education systems in Taiwan are focused in teaching and learning cognitive skills. Moreover, people have to work long hours and leave few or no attachment between parents and children. Many children grow up with vacant spirit. They are not happy, don’t like themselves, and have no eager to learn anything. Once short of a proper training and guidance, physical and mental issues are easily to occur.
In 1999, RFLEA is funded by Mr. Jing-long Chen. He decided to serve children in life education. He trains staff and volunteers to achieve the association’s mission. These volunteers are called Rainbow Moms. Rainbow moms are mothers well trained in life education asking nothing in return. They travel to elementary schools and tell stories to children. The stories will bring joy and fulfillment.
In 2004, RFLEA officially published the first series of life education books which was used in elementary schools as well. Accumulated to 2018, RFLEA has reached approximately 2,000,000 children, and guiding them to think optimistically and love life.*
The mission of RFLEA is to reach and touch and has given children a better faith in life, hope and further touch the public.

Major Impact Courses
Rainbow life education gives children and families a new vision to brave challenges, enjoy new tasks, gain confidence and accept changes in the journey through life. Our 4 main courses focus on a variety of themes based on theories of learning and values in life experience.
Life is like a tree. Root is the faith and value set; fertile soil which provides sufficient nutrition is like life education. Sufficient nutrition nourishes the tree to root deep and grow tall. The tree brings forth fruits which are morals. Therefore, life is the tree and morals are the fruits. Good tree brings forth good fruits.
Our chairman Professor, Nei-Yuh Huang her motto is “Reach and Touch.” Life education does not just teach and coach it brings more than a method to see the ideals of family transformation.
Children learn to cultivate self-awareness and practical power. Observation, interpretation and application are designed to explore daily non-cognitive skills.
