Our Story

English Teaching Class To Local Sulfur Miner

The story began from a bunch of engineering college students made a social project in 2010 for kawah ijen miners in the village. We gave them basic english knowledge in order to be able to communicate with foreigners at Kawah Ijen. Those short term project finally stuck due to lack of funding from the government. An idea came up to use any local's resources to empower locals. Corporated with locals we established local based tour operator for foreign tourists with first destination was surely Kawah Ijen.

We found a way to empower local resources into tourism business, by using their own house as accommodation and employed them as local tour guides. These will give them extra income by hosting guests to their home and also be their tour guide. For guests, this became a rare opportunity to know more about local life. Stay with local family at a peaceful village, join them on their daily activities, and guided by local will give guests experiences of real Indonesian life.

Business Expansion - 2011

Our main destination package was Kawah Ijen, our locals are former sulfur family at Kawah Ijen. On 2015 Kawah Ijen was totally closed due to volcanic activity increased, jobless for almost 5 months was not good for our people. We found a way to expand the business by involving more destinations such Mount Bromo, Malang, Yogyakarta and many more so that our local still have an extra income.

Business Development - 2013 Till Today

We were really high motivated to involve more locals in our company, we built more sister companies in tourism industries and employed more locals to join us. Today we have many locals joined as accommodation provider, tour guide, and driver.
