What we do
What we do
The Dutch foundation Heart For Sumba is the main supporter of children’s home Hammu Pangia. Hammu Pangia was set up 10 years ago. It is located on the island of Sumba, one of the poorest islands of Indonesia. It is almost twice as big as Bali and has more than 650.000 residents.
A happy and safe home! That is what Hammu Pangia wants to offer to vulnerable Sumbanese children. In Hammu Pangia, these children all become part of a big family, where they receive personal attention, food, clothing, health care and education within a family environment; but most of all they receive love, respect and hope for a better future.
From the age of 6 all children go to school. After finishing their high school we offer them support in stretching their education to college or other advanced education. At the moment 3 former Hammu Pangia children are students (in either Bali or Flores). We are firm believers that education can break the poverty cycle.You can help us do this by sponsoring a child or a project. It really makes all the difference.
Heart for Sumba wants to provide the children at Hammu Pangia a safe and happy home while providing access to education.
