Colours of Life was started by a small group of friends – professionals with various backgrounds – who felt the urge to do something meaningful for society. The aim of the group was to find a cause that resonated with each individual that would enable them to bring about a change, uplift the community, and stay engaged.
The focus of the Trust was built on the foundation that there are numerous children capable of achieving anything in life but lack the opportunity to do so. Therefore, Colours of Life was formed to give an opportunity to those children who do not have the privilege of a stable family with a stable income.
The Trust was registered in the year 2002 to motivate family, friends and associates to contribute time, resources and funds towards paying school fees, uniforms, books, prizes and scholarships to government run primary and secondary schools.
