SIV Networking Evening July 2015: Making Friends through Storytelling

We reconnected with old friends, and made new ones in celebration of International Friendship Day, as part of our regular networking sessions with our Singapore International Volunteers.

Through the session, we learnt the art of storytelling, and enacted tales, which we hope will be useful for future Words on Wheels project trips!

Giving fellow participants high-fives for an enjoyable, engaging evening of storytelling.
