It all started with a family holiday in Sumatra in 2013. The founders of CareSumatra, Sue and Sean Delaney, fell in love with the people and just wanted to do something to help the local community. So they started a sustainable trekking company in 2013 to give local people alternative jobs outside of palm oil and rubber. The money was reinvested in the local community.
We have gone a long way since then and started community and conservation programs together with our partner organisations. Through these projects we help protect the rainforest and empower local communities. In 2019, we established CareSumatra charity to formalise the work we have been doing and to create more opportunities for the future.
