Our First Human Library

On 28 February 2016, we organised our very first Human Library with the theme Defenders of Singapore.

This session is done in collaboration with Nexus (Mindef) and Youth Corp Singapore.Veterans of SAF came and share their life journey during the days of rages with our participants. Stories are real and provided many insights and different perspectives towards Total Defence, the five different pillars and our roles as citizens.

It was a meaningful session for both the “books” and the readers, as well as for us, the organisers. The core of our mission is to plant seeds of empathy in participants through the creation of unique experiences. We want to put them into the shoes of others.

Reporter Lianne Chia also visited us. Check her video out!
