The long-term separation of children from their parents leaves them vulnerable to both physical and emotional problems. In addition to that, these children are often being educated in run-down school facilities.
Together with China Next Generation Education Foundation, Dulux (sister brand of Taubmans in Papua New Guinea) colour experts designed the classrooms for the kids at the Beiye Elementary School in Shijiazhuang, China.Their previously grey, old classrooms are now transformed with bright, vivid colours & patterns. Also, computers were installed for connecting the children with their far-away parents online. So far, more than 35 schools have been renewed across China with more to follow, and they have been warmly welcomed by the children & the local teachers.
