We work with local schools, hospitals, community centers and libraries that need a paint job makeover but are unable to do so on their own due to lack of fund and helping hand. You will have the chance to use your artistic skills to paint murals and inspirational messages. The community people will give you extra hand.
Painting projects are mostly arranged in a rural community in Nepal. These unprivileged community doesn’t have enough fund access to paint and decorate their local educational and health facilities.
Urban painting project are available too which includes painting the community schools and hospitals. This program is available for 2+ or large groups, runs all year round. Duration of this project would be 1 to 12 weeks
People with paint and art skills are encouraged to join this project
