Marily Van Nevel, based out of Belgium but regularly travelling to Sumba. Working in Singapore in the corporate banking industry, Marily visited SHF as a tourist back in 2017 and later returned for a month of volunteering. Convinced that she would thrive in a more meaningful job, Marily joined the SHF team after obtaining an MBA from INSEAD in 2018.  Her corporate and management experience bring a more business-and process-oriented perspective to the team. The experience she gained in Human Resources prior to joining BNP Paribas, help her streamline the recruitment and HR policies at SHF. Finally, she plays a facilitating role in all fundraising and networking activities of SHF.

Today, the Foundation supports a boarding school, a permaculture learning farm, the Maringi hotel and spa where every year 60 students practise their hospitality skills and Makan Dulu, a training restaurant specialised in local food where another 20 young people learn restaurant skills.
