The workshop is held during the summer vacation every year to promote the schoolchildren gain an experience in volunteering.

The theme of the workshop this year was "Let's meet with persons with disabilities". The children learned about a daily life of a Deaf person and sign language on the first day.

The next day, they challenged cooking with a person visual impairment and making a card in the Braille.
