A group of students from our university volunteered their time to renovate a clock and watch repair store. The store is situated besides Nanshan Campus and they spent one week on completing the planning, design and construction. Their kindhearted efforts have brought new life to the shopkeeper.

Tian Zhenkun, graduate of CAA, said. “I hope to bring more public care to traditional craftsmen through design and art.” Xu, Xi, student member of CAA, said to us, “My classmates and I always get our watches repaired at the store and we hope providing a better working environment for Mr. Dai, the shopkeeper based on our efforts.”


It is the first project of a public welfare program of CAA-“Tong Hua Shan Ye”. It aims at reducing poverty and changing life by design.
