Grab-A-Brush, Colour-A-Life initiative which involves beautifying a poorly kept public school, motherless home, street, park etc with focus on our rural communities in any state in Nigeria by cleaning and painting with beautiful colours and patterns.
The initiative is aimed at using colours to positively influence the psychology, emotion, productivity, communication and learning of a child and a community at large by creating a comfortable and engaging environment.
The initiative also educates teachers on basic health, safety and environmental knowledge, while donating fire fighting equipment to the schools and the communities.
