The Sumba Project

Sumba is an island in the Indonesian archipelago where malaria, tuberculosis, malnutrition and dysentery are rife. With very little access to health care, hundreds of Sumbanese people die every year due to preventable diseases.

Founded in 2013, The Sumba Project was established by a group of passionate and dedicated Griffith University students in conjunction with the Sumba Foundation Australia. Through education of local people, we are seeking to achieve genuine and sustainable change by forging a lasting partnership with the people of Sumba.
