Project Trash to Treasure:
Kalyan Krupa Foundation is excited to propose a long term employment generation program through effective use of Art to offer learning short term courses for tribals, welders and girls of making toys, sculptures and artifacts created using scrap materials like wood, metal waste and e-waste. Our aim is to produce art as social intervention, to inspire awe and joy, to educate, and to alter attitudes of viewers, ultimately creating a long-lasting continuous revenue stream for young and aspiring students. We intend to teach them to turn unused wood, metal scrap & e-waste into creative pieces of toys & art like Garden sculptures, home and office sculptures and artifacts. These courses will not just create employment but also will be credited to the Green Movement taking place in different spheres of life. Recycling is one of the best ways to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. It is vital for our natural environmental health. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.
Converting scrap into valuable art pieces is an innovative way to show our concern for the environment and thus encouraging the masses to reuse, reduce and recycle for a better future. With waste disposal posing a serious environmental challenge in India, it is expected such initiative will also encourage citizens to take concrete actions to ease the situation.
Professional Artists having expertise in creating toys, sculptures & artifacts will be the faculties to teach our students on how to create toys & Art Works from wood & metal scrap.
1. Training for Tribals to convert wooden scrap into beautiful TOYS
