We’re not only painting for today, we’re harnessing the power of paint for a better tomorrow. From rebuilding schools to repainting classrooms, we’re dedicated to inspiring young people with a splash of colour, and creating exciting spaces for them to work, rest and play.
And not just locally – we’ve taken Let’s Colour into schools around the world. One of our earliest projects saw us inject colour into the classrooms of Belgium. Meanwhile in China, 20 schools were repainted, with AkzoNobel staff and families invited to participate in these important transformations.
More recently, we sent a team of 15 Dulux staff from the UK and Ireland to Nepal to help rebuild a school damaged by the devastating 2015 earthquake. Back in the UK, to mark 25 years of sponsoring Community RePaint, leftover paint was donated to a school in Slough to create a vibrant mural.
Students took part in a workshop, led by Dulux Creative Director Marianne Shillingford, to design the playground mural. After a lesson or two from our team of painters, they got to paint their creation on the wall as well. Students and teachers alike were delighted at the results.
