PPG completed a Colorful Communities® project at Xinmin Primary School in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province, China. The project brought together nearly 45 PPG volunteers, who spent more than 90 hours beautifying the school’s dormitory, gymnasium and exterior walls.
“Today’s youth are the future and hope of our country, and their education is an important focus for PPG,” said Cathy Yan, PPG general manager, corporate and government affairs, Asia Pacific.
PPG volunteers used a color palette of lotus pink as the main shade and accents of green, blue and deep pink. The three shades used to paint the dormitory building and the facade of the gymnasium form a sharp contrast and layered visual effect.
The sky-blue shade for the roof and the bright green in the middle create an energetic and hopeful feeling, said the company. The lotus pink at the bottom echoes the buildings’ original lotus-theme decorations to provide a positive and hopeful atmosphere, which encourages students to learn and explore the unknown world.
“We are committed to talent development for the next generation by creating a better educational environment for young people. In the future, we will bring Colorful Communities projects to more campuses as part of our mission of protecting and beautifying the world,” said Yan.
Founded in 1952, Xinmin Primary School has a strong cultural heritage. As the school prepared to celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2022, it was faced with broken facades on its dormitory building and gymnasium and walls that had fallen.
