The first aim of this research is to make use of the construction of the Monga Community Museum to transform the human and social context of the Monga community into an integrated museum. The area's distinguished properties, the lifestyles of local residents as well as that of the homeless from within the community will make up the museum's most authentic and lively displays. Secondly, we want to use the connections created by working with the tourism industry to help bring local businesspeople, the homeless and local residents together, thereby forming a platform for the local economy. Thirdly, those who experience these activities through the Monga Community Museum will be able to rethink their own personal values as well as any cultural biases they may have, thereby establishing friendly relations based on respect, empathy and mutual understanding. Lastly, for the homeless who act as museum guides, all of the physical work involved with the community museum can be seen as a job opportunity, helping them to play a role in society, to acquire work skills and to return to a more normal life. The researchers believe that only by constructing "local spirit" and "local stories" in this way will they be able to make tourists envious and thereby attract more of them to visit. Similarly, it will also lead to more people from the community being willing to concern themselves with social issues and participate in activities related to the development of community properties.
