A Village in Mumbai Got a Colorful Makeover

The Asalpha slum in Mumbai has gotten a makeover by 750 volunteers, turning the village into a beautiful display of colors. Inspired by the Italian city of Positano, Asalpha overlooks the water and the bright, new colors make for a great backsplash.

A youth group called “Chal Rang De,” painted the exterior of the houses vibrant colors. The founder of the initiative, Dedeepya Reddy, said, “We wanted to use our knowledge of design so we can change the way people look at slums. People at the slums were supportive and cooperated with us to bring change.”
