A happy co-incidence

Simon sent me a quote yesterday to build the semi-permanent school at Lequeracabu’u. Agostinho has taken on the project with a passion and has obtained a quote for $ US15, 000 for a contractor to build the school.

In the meantime, with the worst wet season in almost 10 years, roads are still impassable and Simon hasn’t been able to get out to look at other likely sites.

This morning, one of my good friends Eliza, who lives in Dubai, called to say that she and another friend Megan had decided they’d like to arrange a fund raising party for East Timor. It seemed like a perfect match to me – a project with an achievable target and a party which could raise a lot of money. We’re meeting up next week to talk about it, but it is sounding fabulous.
