Home to the Sumba Foundation and a slate of sustainability practices, including organic gardens that produce the majority of the resort’s food and an impressive composting and water recycling system, Nihi Sumba is a luxury resort with a conscience.
The Sumba Foundation was founded in 2001 to help alleviate the crushing burdens of poverty the locals were living under, by focusing on water, health, education and economic projects.
Key achievements include treating 407,000 patients across four clinics; reducing malaria rates by 93% in core project areas; developing more than 65 wells and 260 water stations; and supplying water, toilets and supplies to 22 primary schools.
Through the generous support of Nihi Sumba owner, Chris Burch, all administrative costs of the Sumba Foundation are maintained, allowing 100% of donations to directly fund these meaningful projects.
