Art speaks where words are unable to explain. All children are artists. The problem is how to remain one, once he grows up. Art helps in deciphering the mysteries of life. The dilemmas that we are not able to present in words can easily be described through paintings and other art activities. Manthan SVK, an initiative by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan is working for the education and development of underprivileged children in the society. What sets apart this organization is that they not only focus on education of a child, they also works on cultural and spiritual development i.e. overall development of a child. They aim for Sampoorna vikas (Overall Development) of a child. Many other organizations regularly visit various branches of Manthan to encourage the children and boost their moral.
