The Sumba Foundation is deeply committed to lessening the consequences of poverty on the island of Sumba. Our aim is to provide humanitarian aid through village-based projects that measurably impact local health by establishing access to clean water, creating educational programs, and lessening the effects of Malaria. While these are our top priorities, so too is preserving and respecting the fragile culture and traditions of the Sumbanese people.
Through the generous support of Chris Burch, owner of Nihi Sumba Resort, all administrative costs of the Sumba Foundation are maintained, allowing 100% of donations to directly fund these meaningful projects.
“The Foundation believes that each and everyone of us has a responsibility to better use our position and resources to help people living in poverty realize their needs and vision of a better world.”
