We painted several outdoor murals at the Rajef Boys’ School. The aim was to spruce up the campus and the community by covering up old and abused murals with fresh ones. The FOJ grant was spent purchasing paint, brushes, rollers, tape and paint thinner. A group of adults and some students were able to first white-wash the exterior walls then paint new murals on top. Another team braved ladders to paint a giant Jordanian flag, underneath which we wrote “We are all Jordan” in Arabic. The outside murals included a small flag, a Treasury replica from Petra, Jabal Haroon (Mt Aaron), a large map of Jordan and a “Welcome to the Rajef Boys’ School” wall. The resulting murals brighten up the atmosphere and the community is really excited about them as well.
