A university cannot be sustainable without being socially responsible. This is also a commitment of Soegijapranata Catholic University (SCU), especially to alleviate poverty in east Sumba. It was found that poverty has caused women have heavier burden than men, some customs even make it heavier. Therefore some activities were conducted to encourage changes in women's behavior for reducing poverty and strengthening economic resilience. The most effective way to harmonize culture, paradigm and behavior is through whole person education.
