Rainbow Village: Indonesian Government Invests $22,467 To Paint 232 Slum Houses

Some places are naturally colorful, but others need a little help. To combat a previously drab landscape, a town in Indonesia has painted over 200 houses in a vibrant mixture of hues that electrify the hillside.

The Central Java community, located in a southern district of Semarang, spent over $22k on the magnificent makeover in a bid to shake off its status as a degraded slum. Initiated by 54-year-old junior high principal Slamet Widodo, the project was inspired by at least 3 other towns in the country that adopted similar paint jobs, and has turned at least 232 homes in Kampung Pelangi into works of art. Creative murals adorning the walls of narrow passageways burst with life, giving a veritable pulse to the whole village.
