Driving lasting impact through education and building colourful communities, AkzoNobel, a Dutch paint firm, has partnered with SOS Children’s Village in Pakistan to empower vulnerable youth for better chances of employment through various colour training programs.
Thirty young participants from SOS Children Village were educated on colour theory and techniques for application of colour by experts from the paint firm.
The ground overflowed with energy as the children lapped up the various kinds of jumping castles, rides and other activities organised for them at the carnival.
The jumping castles were particularly a hit among them as they provided them with an opportunity to playfully tackle their friends without getting hurt and hold impromptu jumping contests.
Speaking on the Occasion, Dutch Ambassador, Ardi Stoios-Braken said, “I appreciate AkzoNobel’s efforts in contributing towards a brighter future for these children. This collaboration will add more colour to the lives of these young people and help them lead independent lives.”
The Dutch paint firm hopes to equip the participants with a useful and empowering skill to builds their self-confidence and bring them one step closer to leading productive lives, personally and professionally.
