Love in Action Journey - Bali to Sumba, Indonesia.
Time & Location
About the Event
Lovers and change makers, on this journey in Bali + Sumba, Indonesia we pour our love back into mother earth!
Immerse yourself in the best of both worlds - we make our way to the beautiful remote, less visited island of Sumba!
The life of the people in Sumba is more difficult than on other islands of Indonesia.
Especially the northern part of Sumba is extremely dry. The soil is exhausted by deforestation and erosion. About half the population has no access to clean water. There are hardly any doctors. Little more than a quarter of the children get a qualified basic school education.
As a Sumba traveller, you have to be aware that you are confronted with real poverty.
If you cannot manage without WiFi, your social network, and other achievements of the western world, you should wait a little bit before you make a trip to Sumba. Sumba has only about one sixth of the population of Bali. Sumba is a beautiful, friendly island with a highly distinctive culture, which is slowly developing into a tourism destination.
From Ubud - We travel to the beautiful island of Sumba, and rest in environmentally friendly bungalows built entirely from locally sourced bamboo, at Maringi Eco Resort. This resort is apart of the Sumba Hospitality Foundation. On the land of the resort, includes a solar powered school for local children and teenagers and an organic permaculture farm where many amazing projects are run for the local community. They also provide vocational education for underprivileged high school graduates between the ages of 17 and 23 years old.
An establishment completely off the grid, they have even installed a waste water treatment system that allows them to re-use 90% of waste water for irrigation.

History of Sumba Hospitality Foundation:
Inge De Lathauwer first stepped foot on Sumba in 2013; she was overwhelmed by the natural beauty and authenticity of the island, yet saddened to see the living conditions of the local people. Due to its pristine beaches and vibrant culture, Sumba was poised for a surge in tourism development, therefore potentially creating an influx of indispensible job opportunities. While this was an exciting prospect, many Sumbanese youth are underprivileged and do not have access to the relevant education and training that would be required to occupy these positions. This is when the initial seed was planted and Inge’s idea of The Sumba Hospitality Foundation flourished into a beautiful reality.
Since the opening of The Sumba Hotel School on July 1st, 2016, there has been an extraordinary transformation. What once was an arid landscape is now abundant with life; the farm and gardens are blossoming with fruits, vegetables and medicinal herbs, which make delicious ingredients for the meals and drinks served in the Bar and Restaurant. Additionally, the implementation of the solar panel farm and water treatment system allow the school to be self-sufficient and present the campus as a model of conservation and green energy throughout the island.
