GEG spreads love to the society on community service challenge day

Since the 5th“GEG Youth Achievement Program” (YAP) co-organized by Macau Management Association and GEG kicked off last year, participants have been engaging in a series of activities designed to enhance leadership skills, build confidence and facilitate interaction with the community. YAP participants recently held a community service challenge day to spread love to the society. On the event day, participants gathered at the hub of Macau and invited strangers to undertake challenges, which included folding paper cranes and giving out free hugs to strangers. At first, strangers were hesitant to participate, but once a few people began to participate in the challenges, many others followed. The participants also created a banner and asked strangers to sign it in support of community care in Macau. The challenge day created opportunities for  participants to boost their self-esteem and spread love to the Macau society.
