Tackling Poverty with Tourism

Tackling Poverty with Tourism

The age-old “teach a man to fish” saying rings true with the Sumba Hospitality Foundation. Powered by the leadership of Inge De Lathawauwer and Dempta Bato, the eco-sensitive resort doubles as hands-on experience for local students looking to enter the workforce. We talk to Inge and Dempta about breaking the poverty cycle, the stringent student selection process, as well as keeping the resort sustainable from both a financial and environmental point of view.
