Happy News from Indonesia!

4 years ago by Laura

We’re all about the happy face emoji 😁 so when we see positive news we like to share it. This story from Indonesia where a community has given their village a rainbow facelift certainly left us with a smile on our faces!🙂

After the local council committee assigned 3,000,000,000 Indonesian Rupiah (£17,000) for the project to take place in the village of Kampung Pelangi, even the mayor reportedly got his hands dirty and painted over 200 of the houses himself!🌈

One of the local teachers, Slamet Widodo, came up with the idea for creating the Rainbow Village 🌈to transform the struggling area, which was considered a slum, into a tourist attraction.

It’s not just all vivid colours and rainbows, there’s also plenty of art to discover around every corner including psychedelic hearts❤️, angel wings👼, dinosaurs and polka dots.

We love it! What do you think?
