A video story that was created about our foundation earlier this year, “What responsible tourism can look like in Sumba”, was one of only two video stories in Indonesia competing to be Our Better World’s Good Story of the Year 2017. ‘Our Better World’ is a digital story-telling initiative that helps social enterprises promote themselves across Asia. Their ‘Good Story of the Year 2017’ was our opportunity to win an award and $5000 for our school. This was such an amazing opportunity for us, and one we were determined to win! From the 14th of December, we had to start a social media campaign in order to collect votes, on the 27th of December the vote closed and we found out the result.
An award + $5000 thanks to ‘Our better world foundation’
We are absolutely ecstatic to announce that we won! This was down to the tremendous support received from people all over the world who voted for us. We want to say THANK YOU to all of you, what a wonderful way to enter the new year! Enjoy the videos once more!
