The words echoed in my mind months later as we drove into the heart of the dreaded community only to find that it appeared surprisingly similar to the rest of the city, but with a bit more graffiti.
The community had asked for help from Pastor Santos’s church a year before, and after praying and reflecting for a whole year, they decided to do something radical--they began treating the young men in that community just like everyone else. They opened up their home garden projects and tilapia fish farms to those who were interested and offered the young men training in order to learn to make unique t-shirts with stamps and organic dyes.
