The "Let's Colour Project" is an international outreach project sponsored by Dulux paint company.  Beginning back in March 2010, volunteers traveled to the drab and dreary corners of the globe spreading brighter colors in hopes to transform communities and the people within them.  With every brushstroke, members of "Let's Colour" have created spiritual and emotional transformations from London, Rio de Janeiro and Paris to Jodhpur, India.   The ...
