THE 5TH YOUTH WORLD CUP LIVE PAINTING COMPETITION
IS COMING !!
The 5th Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition will be held on Aug 6th, 2017 at Richmond Olympic Oval. It is a global charity event hosted by Canada Youth Arts Development Foundation with the support of UNICEF. This global charity event aims to raise awareness for underprivileged children, provide a platform to help and give them a better future, and to promote the cultural and artistic exchange among youth and children globally. The theme of this year event is “Friendship, Dream and Environmental Protection”, and children and Youth Artists, ages from 4 to 25, across the world will be participating in the competition.
This global charity event is organized to raise fund for UNICEF’s project: “School in A Box”. The “Box-School”, with the supplies that a school requires, can turn any outdoor space into a school environment. One school-box can provide education for forty students, a size similar to a small community school. All funding goes to UNICEF under UN to help underprivileged children beyond our broader to gain wellness, education and more.
With all the influential supports, the Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 were a great success. We had more than 100,000 participants from over 50 different countries and regions participating in our previous competitions. Since 2012, our event has raised more than 80,000 CAD to help the children in need, and has provided approximately 12,000 children the access to education.
