Project “Beautifying the neighborhood” (Tel Aviv, Israel)
Project by New Acropolis Tel Aviv volunteers in collaboration with one of the residents from a district of Jaffa – of scarce economic resources – whose dream was to create activities that would encourage and challenge the rest of the neighbors to improve their living environment. Divided into small groups, residents were assigned a specific area to restore and paint, each area with a different color. The activity encouraged and inspired residents to cooperate. Some expressed surprise and excitement for the fact that people who did not live in the area, offered their time and effort to come and beautify their neighborhood.
