Change a life!

The Sumba Hospitality Foundation (‘SHF’) is a non-profit organization located in Sumba, a pristine but underprivileged island in eastern Indonesia (NTT province). The main mission of SHF is to drive a sustainable tourism development for the Indonesian island of Sumba by means of empowering local, disadvantaged youth. To achieve this mission, the Foundation manages a full boarding hospitality and permaculture school for disadvantaged youth, as well as an exclusive eco-resort called Maringi (nine rooms). The school and the eco-resort provide the students with a well-rounded vocational education, focusing on practical and soft skills.

Currently 59 students make up our third student batch. They learn vocational skills in one core area: Culinary, Food & Beverage, Housekeeping, Front Office, or Spa, while learning English as a Second Language, Permaculture and Life Skills.
