Mission Statement

It is our belief that Tourism can be a positive force in a poverty stricken region particularly when its community is involved in the process. It is our goal to assist in providing viable employment to Sumba's young inhabitants and break the circle of poverty while also protecting the environment and their culture.

Description

The Sumba Hospitality Foundation has built an hotel school and permaculture farm on the island of Sumba, in Eastern Indonesia. Sumba is one of the most underdeveloped islands in Indonesia and yet at the same time, is beautiful, unspoiled and has a very strong and interesting animist culture.

Through hospitality and farming education, we hope to break the pervasive circle of poverty on the island and offer our students an opportunity to provide for themselves and ultimately their communities.
