In May of 2018, three Australians with private charitable projects in the Lakey Peak surfing community on Sumbawa Island decided to join forces with American Jack Kennedy to start Health Access Sumbawa Ltd, an Australian affiliate of Health Access Sumbawa Inc. The resulting non-profit is the only tax-exempt Public Benevolent Institution based in Australia that is funding programs in Sumbawa.
A Few of Our Current Programs;
We focus on families, early childhood, and women living in financially disadvantaged, remote communities on Sumbawa Island in Indonesia. The Founders are intimately familiar with the needs of central Sumbawa . As donors ourselves with "skin-in-the-game", we personally audit program results and the use of funds on a regular basis, including regular field visits. We are able to exercise unusual control because most programs are implemented by our in-country affiliate, Yayasan Health Access Sumbawa Indonesia.
