In the west and among the well-off families in Pakistan children are encouraged to draw to ensure the development/improvement of their fine motor skills, visual analysis, concentration, hand-eye coordination, individual confidence, and creative problem solving.
But millions of child laborers in Pakistan are not only robbed of their childhood, but are punished if they draw. For these children, their only drawing boards are walls and their crayons are charcoal from the stoves. Their natural urge to create causes a “mess” that someone must clean up, and so their fine motor skills, confidence, and creative problem solving abilities are suppressed.
At Brighter Tomorrow we provide children with colored pencils, crayons, and paper to draw on. They are given an opportunity to express their feelings creatively and develop these important skills.. Brighter Tomorrow will be sharing their drawings with you along with descriptions of the class projects that led to the children’s creations.
If you would like to own a copy of a drawing, please write to us and we will share a high resolution copy of the drawing.
