We wrote here about about a new group of MiniActive Youth. On July 19 they started action. First stop was beside the boys’ elementary school and boys’ middle school in Silwan. Here’s some pictures:
They started working on the area that borders the schools. First they cleaned up the space.
And then they started painting. First they needed to paint the wall white.
And then the decoration. Because it’s adjacent to a school, they painted images of Winnie the Pooh,
SpongeBob Square Pants, Bambi and others, universal characters for children the world over.
Here’s a compilation of “before” and “after,” as well as in between.
And here’s the first post from the MiniActive Facebook page (in Arabic):
But they didn’t stop there.
A few days later, shaded from the heat, they continued painting favorite characters.
Here’s more pictures from the work in progress. The July 26 Facebook post (in Arabic):
And on the next day you can see the progress that they made:
They continue to make progress – in decorating more parts of the outside wall.
Or in painting garbage receptacles nearby.
Notice the graffiti on the wall above the garbage receptacle. Thanks to MiniActive women and the work of the Jerusalem Municipality, this, too has been removed.

So great to see the progress! I’m sure we’re not the only ones.
