Holding art camps for underprivileged children from various slums in Mumbai and Delhi. Our Art camps are created to give the children an equal social platform for them to interact with the society. Underprivileged children are mostly disengaged from main stream education, disruptive or withdrawn and mostly avoid going to school. Our camps are held at municipal schools, balwadis and patshala’s to encourage the children for not skipping school and that learning can be fun. In the last six years we have demonstrated that a caring and creative environment, even the most problematic child can learn and achieve through art.
RNAF each year a selection of young and aspiring artists are chosen for a touring exhibition, which travels across the globe. Artists who cannot exhibit due to financial or physical restrictions are sponsored by the foundation. Handicapped artists have always been a part of past exhibitions and the foundation plans to promote them in the future as well.
LEARN TO EARN
RNAF believes that learning/knowledge is the key to success, As our founder says “ Learn has earn in it”. We provide study material for students going to school even help with admission where required. Vocational Training programs in Art are conducted in-house. We sponsor education in whichever field for older students.

Paint Dharavi is a social reform and transformation initiative by Rouble Nagi Art Foundation which started in 2016. The aim was to builds bridges between communities via art and create a community that is aware of the problems and challenges, only once we are aware of the problem can we address them properly. We have successfully held workshops and opened our centers in Dharavi creating environmental advocates who work towards educating people about health and sanitation. Waste management and ways we can stop the use of plastics is an integral part of this initiative.
