During November and December of 2012, the youth participants of the ACJU Callejero (street) project learned how to make recycled paper, using newspaper and tortilla wrapping as their raw materials. Making recycled paper was a task that required a lot of patience on the part of the youth, because it is a labor-intensive and somewhat tedious job. It was also a challenge, since the group meets outside in the street, because if was often very windy while they were working. It took a long time to make enough recycled paper for their needs but they persevered and, when they were finally done, the used the paper they had made to fashion hand-made Christmas cards which they then sold. The youth themselves had the idea to use the proceeds from the sale of the cards to finance a field trip, and they chose to visit the floating gardens of Xochimilco, an attractive tourist destination that attracts visitors from all over the world. Although it is located in Mexico City, which is not too far away, some of the youth had never been there, and 12 youth ended up participating in the outing. They really enjoyed their trip, riding in the gondolas, floating on the water and seeing the flowers and gardens. Additionally, through this activity, the ACJU Callejero participants saw in a very practical way how, even when they do not have many resources to begin with, they can come up with solutions and take action to achieve a goal they set for themselves. Additionally last month the project held 5 regular weekly meetings as well as 2 informal meetings in the part to play sports and make contact with new potential participants. The end of the year celebration also took place in December, which the youth themselves organized. Since their meeting place is outdoors, in the street, they brought tables and chairs from the ConeXión Mosaico offices, they decorated their tarp with Christmas decorations, they brought food and one of their mothers helped out by making the traditional hot holiday fruit punch. The spiritual impact that ACJU Callejero is having on the participants’ families was also seen, when the parents of some of the girls who attend the youth group expressed an interest in participating in one of Comunidades de Shalom’s Bible studies.
