Creating a Brighter Future

T.Purevbaatar

By B.TUNGALAG

T.Purevbaatar was born without legs and with just one arm. However, he did not give up and learned to paint and play the flute on his own. N.Ariuntuya was in a train accident and lost her legs when she was nine. Now she crafts slippers, baby shoes and mats from felt. She lives with her mother and son.
Monnis Group appreciated their unstoppable, hardworking nature and established the “For Brighter Future” non-governmental organization. For Brighter Future and the Department of Labor and Welfare of Sukhbaatar District worked together to open the “If People…” exhibition featuring the work of T.Purevbaatar and N.Ariuntuya on January 22, at Monnis Tower.
T.Purevbaatar wants to express his inner world through his paintings. He lives with his wife and three children. He said, “Art fills an empty area of the human soul. I am exhibiting with 12 paintings. I don’t like people who wear fur, hunt animals and hang their skins on the wall. I am protesting them through my artwork named ‘Souvenir’. This creation shows what it looks like if people’s faces were hanging on the wall. I can’t paint anyone I want. That’s why I painted myself.”
N.Ariuntuya said, “I have been involved in the parent’s income raising center of World Vision since 2008. I don’t sit back even though I am disabled. I am managing my family’s livelihood.”
CEO of For Bright Future N.Enkhsaikhan said, “Our organization was established on August 2013, at the initiation of 1,500 people to do charitable works. We gave school supplies to
