A painting fest for street children

New Delhi: As children wait for Santa Claus to knock on their doors this Christmas, there was something in store for their not so lucky brethren surviving on the streets too with an NGO bringing them together for a painting fest on Saturday.

Under the guidance of noted painter Bulbul Sharma, children’s organisation Plan India held a competition for street children aimed at raising funds for them.

“This is a substantial platform for the children from the `Plan’ community to come forth, interact with each other and unleash their thoughts on the canvas,” Sharma said.

“The theme of `Right to Education’ is apt for kickstarting the initiative to make the dream of having it for every child a reality,” she said.

The next fundraising event would be held in Mumbai in April next year and would be hosted by Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor.
