The target group for this campaign is the millions of children living on the streets around the world. Our mission is to spread happiness and inspiration through the simple act of coloring and other forms of artistic self-expression to children all over the world. Allowing them to simply go back to their childhood selves. Every child should have the chance to smile, feel safe, loved, and protected. Let's make them happy by giving them the ability to be creative.

Islamabad - Pakistan
Islamabad, Pakistan is where we'll be starting the first stage of this campaign. During my last trip there in 2021, I got to sit down and color with a group of young boys who were all very excited to show off their coloring skills. All of the boys, ages 7 to 13, wanted to color, spend time, and be creative. If you can afford to donate or buy coloring books, you can help us put a smile on the faces of these kids.
Street Children of Pakistan Organization:
In a developing nation like Pakistan, with no social security system in place, children and young people end up on the street due to dire poverty and fragmented families. According to Government estimates, there are more than 1.5 Million children, both boys and girls, living on the streets of Pakistan. In large cities, where crimes are rampant and rule of law is far from being reinforced, the number of children working on the street is far higher than the official estimates.
