There are a total of 5 projects, including: Heart to Hand, Children's Smile, C4D, Student for Inclusion and Sketchnote for Good.

Community projects are "presented" to students through theater
Market activities are diverse with food areas, paper box collection booths, gift exchange booths and colorful fashion shops. All profits earned at the event are for the purpose of raising funds, implementing future social work trips as well as deploying better projects. Along with the activities is a series of games for UEFers to participate in, connect with each other, and receive small gifts filled with love from the Center. Through this, they will also understand more about the meaning and importance of community projects.
The booths were crowded with students coming to experience
Member recruitment activities for clubs took place at 3:00 p.m. on the same day. According to the Organizing Committee, the Center has received more than 500 online registrations to date.
First time participating in a meaningful festival like this, Nguyen Hoai Anh - a first-year student majoring in Human Resources Management, happily shared: "I feel like today's festival is very fun, the atmosphere is bustling with people. Lots of game booths and delicious food. I personally tried all the game stalls and received many gifts."
Hoai Anh also added: "I plan to register for the Communications department to become one of the pieces of the Sketchnote for Good project. I think this project has high community service, creating many playgrounds for children, so it is very meaningful."
