We started partnering with YRM in 2009 with our first significant project, an anti-malarial program. YRM was one of the first community development organisations to be established in Eastern Sumba, and their incredible rapport in that region is a testimony to the way that they work. They aren’t above the community, but members of it. They have an intimate knowledge of all things agricultural in eastern Sumba and have more recently been helping communities improve their access to water. We love YRM because they are a “no-frills” organisation that is deeply connected to the communities in their region. We are currently partnering with YRM on agricultural and water projects in remote Eastern Sumba.
