We R Toys: Old Toy Repurposing Scheme

Student Affairs Office Community Engagement Service-Learning We R Toys: Old Toy Repurposing Scheme

“As the first time joining activity related to repurposing toys and environmental awareness, I gained sense of satisfaction and achievement because I helped to spread the essential message of environmental protection to our next generation.” (Mandy YIU)


“This program has allowed me to reflect more on my daily life. A lot of toys that I consider not very attractive, are a precious gift for the children in this event. It helps me redefine the value of old products. Everything we own should not be taken for granted because it may mean a lot to someone else.” (Anna HUI)
