This project also involves enhancing the standards of the schools, community areas, etc by drawing and painting motivating educational murals, gardening, painting old walls, and at times painting old furniture based on the requirement of the community. The participants who are creative and have an interest in arts should not miss this opportunity of making a village or a school more beautiful just by putting creativity into place.

Our objective is to make a difference by helping the local community in and around Goa by improving the conditions and the standards of the facilities and also making the community and the area more pleasant.

In addition, during the construction activities, please be careful and mindful when using construction equipment and material, ask assistance from your local coordinators for heavy  tasks  and of course to enjoy and make the most of your stay and make memorable learning experiences.
