Behind the Ticket To The Moon Foundation, there is a blue lagoon (below)… Read more about hammock manufacturer Ticket To The Moon‘s adventures with the Kodi tribe, or how a team of globe-trotters and outdoor lovers fight to protect and promote a timeless culture on a remote Indonesian island.

Sumba-Lagoon

The County of Mandorak is located in Sumba, Indonesia, about an hour away from Bali by plane (Westbound trip, towards East Timor). In a high risk malaria zone, the island’s Western population has no running water nor electricity, while a few roads only link to the Sumbanese capital. The Kodi tribes living in Mandorak have been living out of the rest of the world for ages, with rituals going back to the origins of the Neolithic Age. They live in communion with nature and spirits, with tombs in the middle of the village to honor their ancestors. The Kodi houses shelter families and animals all together under the same hatched-roof. They survive harvesting cashews.

Digging wells, purifying and filtering water for the villagers, introducing soil irrigation systems for agricultural purposes, the Ticket To The Moon Foundation has lead to concrete actions to bring water to West Sumba. From organizing malaria screenings to supporting education, discover the other components of their program below.
