Researches have proved that more than 50% of the children in privation suffered with deficiency in positive thinking and they showed clear signs of habitual complaining, very low self-esteem and severe lack of empathy. A large percent of children severely lack emotional coping mechanisms and showcase inability in regulating both positive and negative emotions. About 75% of the trainers were affirmative about the effectiveness of imparting life-skills. (UNESCO)

MIRROR introduces the concept of Orange Canvas, to help children in privation like those at orphanages, and foster care in designing their lives - providing them with life skills in a yearlong program that applies the concept of Life Designing for the overall development of a child into a content individual using the various resources available within the individual themselves such as character, aptitude, personality, personal skills and so on.

Orange Canvas is an initiative by MIRROR, an NGO based in Cochin, Kerala, India partnered with various governmental & non-governmental organisations, and other like-minded institutions, collaboratively striving to improve the quality of life of the needy.

The fund raised herein through Milaap is to be used to print workbooks for these beneficiary children, as well as other logistical expenses incurred to train volunteers, and conduct the events. The event which is a one-day training camp monitored by experienced social workers and psychologists for the children is set to happen at each partner care home bi-monthly wherein proper monitoring of child development and guidance shall be ensued.

The project is scheduled to start on 22nd February 2020, and funds are an immediate concern. The training programs shall be initially conducted in 50 orphanages in Kerala each having more than 100 resident children in their care, after which more institutions shall be inducted. The main motive of MIRROR behind the ‘Orange Canvas’ project is to equip children raised under institutionalized care to design their life towards success.
