MAKE A READING CITY! Organizing Neighbourhood Carnivals For Book Reading and Recycling

Project Location:

Tai Po and Various Districts, Hong Kong

Community Partner:


Our Social Mission:

To organize “Bring A Book & Share” in shopping malls and neighborhood venues to encourage donation of books for re-sale at charity prices. Old books are therefore passed on and resources are shared in an environmentally friendly way. Book talks and other activities are also staged to promote reading culture. It nurtures future book lovers, of any ages, by offering people free and accessible venues to enjoy reading books. It also makes books a lot more accessible to the underprivileged communities.

Student Learning:

Students will learn how to run and enhance the programme for promoting the reading culture of our city.
