The youth of Beb El Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen have committed to improving their communities and giving their home an entire new look. They have employed the skills they’ve learned through the Beb El Dahab rehabilitation and reintegration program to entirely transform their surrounding public spaces.  

After having revived a historic marketplace on a former demarcation line, the youth took on the challenge of beautifying the Muhajereen street. After months of hard work and dedication, they managed to give the spot a complete makeover. In utilizing the craftsmanship they’ve acquired, they succeeded in bringing the gorgeous authentic architecture back to life. The team sanded down the plaster and uncovered the stunning old stone walls. In parallel, the young women designed the shops’ signs which were then beautifully engraved in metal.

But they did not stop there! The youth also cleaned up and revitalized several little corners and even added a few wonderful seating areas. The final step was adding a touch of greenery that made a world of a difference.

The before and after shots are truly inspiring and a breath of fresh air.
