Join the Repair Café!

Repair Cafés are places where people can bring their broken items to be fixed on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers, this teaches people to see their possessions in a new light and appreciate their value. Repair Café help to change people’s mindset, and this is essential to kindle their enthusiasm for a sustainable society.
