Slum Colour Boost


The Favela Painting Foundation hired locals in one of Rio De Janeiro’s worst slums to paint their entire housing development.

Look at the before and after shots, and imagine what being paid to paint their own homes bright and inspiring colours would do to an extremely impoverished people group.  Community morale, pride and creative output would jump big time.

Yay for charities that encourage and uplift people. Favela Painting’s visually stunning results will undoubtedly prompt more people to give to this cause.
