Shanghai Children’s Home “Reading Together” Program
The “Reading Together” program at Shanghai Children’s Home started in July 2017. A group of volunteers from WACKER HELP went to help organize books and install CD players. Since then, volunteers spend half day at Shanghai Children’s Home every two months, reading with the children and doing craft projects.
“Reading brings wisdom and happiness to kids and takes them on a journey to understand life. I hope our company can make them feel our love. Also, I hope this program will continue and bring knowledge and love to more needy children.”
