Our very first project of INSPIREnepal other than music therapy was the painting project. We had seen many schools and children’s homes that were in a worn state. The government is supposed to give money to schools and children’s homes in order to maintain the buildings but this does not happen. Grey walls or walls full of stains do not provide a motivating learning environment nor does it make you feel safe and loved to live in. Especially after the earthquake, the children need a place that is colorful and stimulating.
With help from volunteers we have been painting entire schools and children homes from walls to decorations. We have been painting alphabets to stimulate the learning process or drawings to stimulate the imagination. Step by step we make a colorful change!
