HOTEL SCHOOL

HOTEL SCHOOL

It is our belief that Tourism can be a positive force in a poverty stricken region particularly when its community is involved in the process. It is our goal to assist in providing viable employment to Sumba’s young inhabitants and break the circle of poverty while also protecting the environment and their culture.

THE HOTEL

THE HOTEL

The foundation campus will include five beautiful guest cottages equipped with en-suite bathrooms, mini bars and a terrace. These guest cottages also provide the opportunity for our students to practically apply their theoretical knowledge in Housekeeping and Room Service.

THE RESTAURANT

THE RESTAURANT

The restaurant will be built in a classic Sumbanese style and will feature both Asian and Western dishes. The restaurant will be open to guests for breakfast and lunch. The restaurant and kitchen will be a valuable training ground for our students in the areas of service, bartending, food preparation and food costing.

THE FARM

THE FARM

A large part of the campus will be dedicated to the growth and maintenance of a sustainable, organic farm, created with the precepts of the burgeoning field of permaculture in mind. Produce from the land will be used in the restaurant and our students will be taught current farming methods with guidelines to better cultivate their land.

ENGLISH FOR ALL

ENGLISH FOR ALL

The foundation will offer free basic English classes to local children and adults in the community from Monday through Friday.
