Facts about Indonesia

Indonesia is a land of dramatic vistas, diverse cultures, and abundant color. Each international traveler is awed by the scenes and experiences offered by the South East Asia destination. Travelers can immerse themselves in exploration adventures as they take in the rice fields, volcanic cones, white beaches, and pristine desert islands. Roaming wildlife delight tourists as they explore the destination, and new cultural experiences greet visitors at every turn. For volunteer vacationers and humanitarians traveling to Indonesia, there is an abundance of opportunities to make a difference in the local communities.

Travelers and vacationers in Indonesia who are interested in responsible tourism can help make a difference in the community by giving to The Sumba Foundation. This humanitarian aid non-profit has been working to foster community-based projects to improve health, education, water, and income-generation. This project has reached more than 20,000 people in the villages on Sumba and has provided them with clean water, health care clinics, school supplies, and more. To donate to this community project, tourists should give school supplies such as pencils, crayons, and compasses or medical supplies such as bandages, hygiene supplies, and soccer balls.
