The UCL Origami Volunteering Project aims to provide a positive distraction for children in hospitals, where we teach kids origami pieces. From origami stars to dinosaurs, it is a relaxing and bonding activity for the volunteers and children.
We volunteer weekly at University College London Hospital (UCLH) by making tutorial videos (and potentially by going to the hospitals)! Don’t worry if you haven’t done origami before. No prior experience with origami is needed to join us. We will teach you everything you need to know!

I saw how such a simple thing -doing origami- had such a positive impact
