Children are our future, and they need attention from us all to grow healthily. The poor children worldwide need not only attention from governments, charity groups, but also attention from each one of us.

Four times Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition have been successfully held in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016. Over 10, 0000 Competitors from 50 countries entered into last four Competitions. We raised funds enough for 200 “Schools in Boxes”, UNICEF program. About 12000 children in poverty have now received support for their education opportunities. 

 

The 5th Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition will be held on Aug 6th, 2017. It would be the 1st International Live painting Day also. More activities will be held on that day ,We hope that this annual competition and charity event will grow into an annual celebration of painting, the “Olympic” of cultural and artistic exchange.
