Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
On Sumba Island, we visit villages to gain insight about local culture and participate in Sumbanese rituals. This tour encourages locals to maintain local values and practices and to share these with people from around the world. We suggest participants buy handicrafts made by locals to support the economy of people in the villages. We also encourage local people to manage their plastic wastes well.
