If you are able to help, your generosity will put brushes in the hands of these kids and help them to add beauty and colour to not just their community but their lives. I strongly advise you to have look at my transparency page before making a donation. After making your donation follow us on Facebook or Instagram, or take a look at our portfolio from time to time to see the smiles your donation has created.
Volunteer with the coolest project in South Africa.

Then this might be just the opportunity you were waiting for. Our projects are perfect for anyone looking to expand their mind and learn some new skills.
As a volunteer, you will be an integral part of the team and apart from a few much-needed tasks. The main requirement is passion and stoke for the project. We very much want you to love what you do as much as we do.
