The Ticket to the Moon Foundation’s ambition is to help the Kodi people find economic balance. Mandorak County is likely to welcome a promising type of industry, eco-tourism.
The idea is to open the Kodi villages to visitors who would agree to share their daily life, respect their rhythm and natural environment, while enjoying a large choice of activities (snorkeling, hiking, horse-riding, etc).
While discovering Mandorak County’s shores, lagoon and landscapes, these eco-friendly tourists will get introduced to the Kodi culture thanks to an organic farm offering local food and traditional Sumbanese meals, let alone organized horse games, tribal music or a visit to the handicraft shop.
With new infrastructures such as solar panels, energy would no longer be an issue. Bringing such modern technologies would be a huge step toward helping the Kodi improve their economic situation, while preserving their culture and promoting an eco-friendly development.
The financial resources collected by the Foundation benefit directly to the Kodi tribe
With the blessing of the Sumbanese officials, The Foundation has bought some land to protect the wild life against possible speculation.
The Indonesian authorities have conceded the status of Natural Park to a part of the Foundation’s territory.
