What's Happening

Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation, in collaboration with Button Mushrooms and Shalimar Paints, is organising a heart-warming event this October called 'Rang Badlav Ke—Paint The Change'. 

This community initiative (part of KSCF's Bal Mitra Mandal programme) aims to paint and beautify the walls of the entire Sanjay Camp Slum in Chanakyapuri. To take on this mammoth task, the organisers need your help.

All the artists, not-so-good artists (like us), writers and photographers in Delhi who can spare a few hours on either of the October weekends (Oct 6 & 7 and 13 & 14) to brighten people's lives should definitely volunteer for this event.  

The idea is to create a festive and happy atmosphere in the camp just in time for Diwali. So, with bright walls and colour, we're told that Maggi and chai will be doing the rounds too (for the kind of adorable party you don't attend every day). 

How's The Venue

Sanjay Camp is an urban slum with over 10,000 people, situated in the middle of the embassies in Chanakyapuri. While it is not the best home for people to live in, the folks at Button Mushrooms, Shalimar Paints and Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation are doing their bit to make the lives of people there better.

Two professional mural artists from Bangalore will be leading this initiative (on the art front). We're told that a few members of the Indian Ocean band will also be dropping by. 

Make A Note

Volunteers can sign up for various roles (pro-artists, photographers, writers and for wall painting), the guidelines for which, will be set by the organisers and must be followed by every participant.

Selected photographs, works of writing and artworks made by volunteers will all be showcased in an exhibition too. Since there are limited spots, be sure to sign up for this event pronto.
