Around 17 percent of the population of Somersworth New Hampshire USA are Indonesians. Last month (May 2021) the town celebrated this by opening the first phase in building its Little Indonesia Cultural Centre.
Building the Little Indonesia Cultural Centre is the initiative of Indonesia Community Connect (ICC.) There’s still a long way to go but Raude Raychel, the president of ICC, believes intercultural understanding and co-operation is helping to turn the dream into reality.
