Mercy Huts, established in 2012, is an Australian Charity that established Rote Island Huts which is a not-for-profit family retreat. Mercy Huts aims to build capacity in the local people living in poverty in Rote Island Indonesia and the visitors who share its vision to promote responsible surfing tourism.
Rote Island Huts offers cultural awareness experiences, surf coaching and development of leadership skills for locals and travellers alike. Rote Island Huts affords guests a holiday with purpose allowing surfers to refine their abilities surfing world-class breaks whilst contributing to community development projects serving the very communities whose waves they enjoy.
This helps shape a future of responsible surfing tourism in Indonesia and abroad.
