Preserving a traditional village and local culture on Sumba Island, Indoneisa

Prai Ijing is a megalithic village on Sumba Island, most famous for its traditional houses. The houses are unique with their structure and meaning. Prai Ijing has a lot of stories and traditions that the local people still observe.

The village has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in Sumba with many local and foreign visitors coming every day. However, this traditional village is in need of better infrastructure and cleanliness. Most locals don't speak English which limits the opportunity for communication and sharing about their culture and traditions.

The project aims to empower the Prai Ijing community by raising awareness of the potential of local culture.The volunteers will help local people to beautify and manage their village by fixing and setting up infrastructure and will help provide information about local culture to tourists. The volunteers will also teach English to local people so that they can effectively communicate and tell about Sumba culture to visitors who come to this traditional village. Other activities within the project include mapping the village, weaving and handicrafts with local women and school visits to speak with young people about traditional culture.

Project dates:

  • February 14 - February 27, 2020
  • September 9 - September 22, 2020
