THE DIFFERENCE YOU MAKE
The Sumba Hospitality Foundation selects only 40 students every year to attend their training programme. These are underprivileged high school graduates who would otherwise not have the opportunity to pursue higher education. By staying in any of the five beautiful bamboo guest pavilions in the on-campus hotel school, you help fund the school programme and give students like Jeffry on-the-job training.
The school is run entirely on solar power, and a large part of the campus is dedicated to a permaculture farm. Students learn sustainable farming techniques as part of their curriculum, and share this knowledge with their families back home, and the hope is to set a precedence for sustainable development on the island.
