Localisation of this project
The village of Lapinu, East Sumba, where Fair Future is working
On January 10, 2020 and for two days, we travelled to Lapinu, a small village nestled in the middle of nowhere, located on the east of the island of Sumba, one of the poorest regions of Indonesia and from Asia.
As you know, we organized a program to celebrate Christmas with the children and the population of this village, during our week of work on site. We have three programs that started almost at the same time in East Sumba, including Lapinu’s Christmas.

During this Christmas 2019, the village of Lapinu does not have access to electricity, we have installed two solar lamps to illuminate the village and the faces of all the inhabitants.
These Christian children and communities, who live without electricity and very little access to water – and at the suggestion of their local teacher – were so happy to participate in a real Christmas party for the first time in their lives. Santa Claus also came, for real and brought them gifts, to all …
The foundation all those who joined us to celebrate this great feast, have prepared an original and healthy meal for everyone in the village of Lapinu. We had a real Christmas ceremony, brought a pastor who told them about Christmas. We also gave them small gifts, especially for children: A headlamp and a special “Christmas Lapinu 2020” t-shirt. Together we sang songs and made this moment really beautiful and moving.
