Fond relections on the visit to Timor-Leste
After Dili, the bustle of the Melbourne coffee shops and CBD life [on my first visit to Australia this year] is certainly a world away in terms of daily experiences. There is real interest in many places now for what our small charity is doing: people warm readily to our concept of 100% of funds going to directly to the projects, with zero administration costs. Following the visit, we have a lot to do: delivering Lequeracabu’u, identifying our next big project, packaging up smaller high-value projects and following up on teacher training, scholarships, sporting facilities, library materials and the like. We are all very grateful for Kris’ energy and organisational skills! Stephen will be next on the ground in Dili, in July it seems, unless some of our readers or donors are likely to be there earlier. If so, please let us know. In the interim, I have attached a couple more photos from the visit to Ostico and thank everyone involved on the ground in Dili for their generous time and support.
