Slum communities are thought to be dirty, crime ridden places with little hope and its projects like this that show that these communities can be beautiful.
DWP teamed up with a group of artists called the Wall Project to help bring colour and creativity to the Saki Naka slum community.
The beautifully painted wall is now the back drop to the slum and DWP’s newly finished garden and sports field. Over 50 artists from across Mumbai have added paint and style to the wall as well as hundreds of children and families from the community.
During the event film students, Abishek Rao, Punit Shah and Sanjay Pillai filmed the days activities. The three call themselves “Broken Tripod Productions” and put together this short video from the day.
