Happy balloons, colorful flowers and a forest of friendly trees greet students as they walk down the halls of the Tara Mobile Creches in Pune, India. These colorful and playful subjects brighten the day of children whose migrant parents are away working.
Kohler associates from our India Technical Center spent one afternoon painting these murals on the previously stark walls as a team-building volunteer activity. It’s a simple but powerful gesture on how we use the power of art to inspire those who need it.
In Shanghai, China, we work with a nonprofit educational program that helps youth with special needs develop their artistic potential. Our associates help kids paint their feelings on canvas. The kids then share their work with the group as a way to practice social integration.
Our support of the arts is rooted in the value our company has always placed on design, innovation and craftsmanship. Art has a way of impacting lives in unexpected ways. Our associates understand this and harness it to make the lives of others, no matter their situation, better, whether it’s in a showroom or a classroom.
