Rajiv Ruparelia Supports Sankara foundation children’s talent by injecting over $1000 in their Art piece

Rajiv Ruparelia through the Ruparelia Foundation yesterday, paid a courtesy visit to children at the Thomas Sankara Foundation who impressed him with unique art pieces specifically demonstrating African archaics.

After being impressed by the children’s talent, Rajiv encouraged them by buying one of the art pieces titled Africa for $1,000. He also encouraged them to think and build their dreams at an International level.

, “Sankara reached out to me and said that the children had made a painting for me, which I have been honored to receive. What inspired me was that it wasn’t Sankara who had painted it, but he trained the children how to do it, which means that he is actually transferring skills and knowledge to the next generation. Maybe one day, one of you will be a famous artiste.” Rajiv said

Sankara Foundation takes care of disadvantaged children and empowers them by nurturing their skills in art, drama, fashion and sports. It was founded by great pan-Africanist Thomas Sankara.

Rajiv further applauded Sankara Foundation for helping disadvantaged children and nurturing them into responsible Ugandans. “The kids are vulnerable but he tries to build confidence in them through different social means such as sport, art, crafts, drama,” he said.

“If we can give our future generation diversified skills, this is something that is going to help the country. This will help them earn a living and keep off the streets,” he said.

On top of the $1,000 that will boost Sankara children’s careers, Rajiv also permitted the children to train for soccer at the Kampala Parents School pitch to boost their skills furthermore.
