The Sumba Foundation

The Sumba Foundation was set up in 2001 by Claude Grave, one of Nihiwatu’s cofounders and ex-managing director.

Now, he focuses on a cause that is close to his heart: alleviating poverty in Sumba by providing sanitation and education. Based in the U.S., the Foundation is universally recognized and has been awarded for its model of sustainable tourism. Working closely with Nihiwatu has allowed the Foundation to achieve milestones such as reducing the risk of malaria by 85%, drilling over 60 new wells in different areas and supporting local schools by providing the necessary infrastructure to function.
