Universal Paints Linden has continued its charitable spirit by donating various paints to a group of student volunteers from the USA to create beautiful murals in the heart of Diepsloot, Johannesburg.
The project came about when a group of universities in the USA decided to bring their volunteer programme to South Africa. There, they met with a talented local mural artist, Benjamin Swatez, and the idea was born.
The team, made up of PhD students from the USA and learners from the LEAP School of Science and Maths in Diepsloot, spent a couple of weeks creating three amazing murals on the walls of the Life Orientation class.
For an explanation of the design from Benjamin: “The father lion is creating a safe place for the next generation to climb higher, and the mother elephant is nurturing the next generation with unconditional love! The city and technology mirror, on opposing walls, the harmony of nature as we can live symbiotically – as elders and young can honour the gift all can bring!”
Thank you so much to Universal Paints Linden team for your kindness in donating paints to this worthy cause!
