We use the medium of art to promote education and positive social values through innovative learning opportunities among children and youth, specially marginalized and from low-income backgrounds.
We work in public and private education sector through our child-centered programs to improve children’s experience of learning through the arts.

We enjoy what we do, and believe that organisations are built on passion, creativity and the social relevance of their idea.
We run Lahore International Children’s Film Festival, our first project that we started in 2007. It brings world’s best films made for, by and about children and young people to Pakistan.
The Little Art is an inclusive organisation, which means, we bring children and youth from all social backgrounds to our programs. We work with Govt. and private school children, as well as street, margenalized and special children.
Regardless of the background and to know from where children and youth come from, we care about what are their dreams and where they want to reach.
We want to diversify in various art forms, so each year we kept creating innovative projects in visual arts, photography, theatre and puppetry.
In visual arts we run ArtBeat – National ChildArt Competition and Exhibitions, which has a theme each year for children to draw and paint. We put an online exhibition of all submitted artwork, hold exhibitions in art galleries in Lahore and Islamabad, give cash prizes to children and promote their work to international art exhibitions.
We have developed a puppetry book, that explains how to make puppets and use it with children in formal and informal teaching. We have conducted workshops with organisations that run street children’s shelter homes.
We organise various competitions and workshops around the year.
We are also offering consultancy services that helps us to continue our mission.

What is On?
We are creating educational and cultural opportunities for marginalized children and youth from low-income backgrounds in Pakistan. We need your help.
We work on issues such as; Global Exposure and Understanding, Critical Thinking, Reading and Writing Skills, Peace Building and Tolerance, Child Protection and Democratic Rights, Capacity Building of Teachers & Caregivers and Sustaining Cultural Heritage.
We are committed to create a positive impact on a child’s life that helps them to develop lifelong goals.
We nurture a child’s dreams, and empower them to realise those dreams.
We envisage a society that is peaceful, democratic, child-friendly and creative.
Our major objectives are to improve Pakistani children’s understanding towards the world they live in, and transform education by engaging them in child-centered interactive learning based on the arts.
