Manav Kedia, a 17-year-old resident of Jaipur, has launched a website to sell paintings made by underprivileged children. An aspiring artist, Manav is motivated towards working for different social causes and he decided to start young.

He is associated with an NGO called Parvaah which works for children and women welfare in New Delhi. He heads the planning and execution department of the NGO’s Jaipur division.

Additionally, he also teaches painting to these children and then sells their work so that the proceeds can be used for their education and welfare. The paintings on the website are priced between Rs. 500 to Rs. 1,500 and he displays his work as well.

“I wanted a digital platform to showcase my work and at the same time I wanted to utilize this platform to showcase the talent these children possess and sell the paintings made by them, to gather funds for their welfare as well as other social causes,” Manav told ANI.

After finishing Class 10 from International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) board, Manav decided to pursue arts as a profession and is now dedicating his time to paint and create other than teaching and helping underprivileged as best as he can.
