A youth organization that’s been known to use graffiti as a means of expression, ‘Germen Crew’ and the government of Mexico joined forces to rehabilitate and beautify the district of Palmitasa, a town in the Pachuca district. The group painted 209 houses, or twenty-thousand square meters of facade, into a single rainbow mural.

According to streetartnews, the impact has been extremely positive: 452 families, or 1808 people, were affected by this project, resulting in violence amongst youths being entirely eradicated. The group, whose name literally means “germ crew,” have made community involvement a priority, which could partially explain the good results.
