Lequeracabu’u School Plaque

Here is a photo and translation of the words carved on the plaque outside Lequeracabu’u School. 

“In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, a group of friends throughout the world came together to fund the building of the Festau School. This group called “Spend it Well”, together with the Lequracubu’u community, are proud to commit to a brighter future for Timor-Leste through the education of our children.   Officially opened by Sra. Kirsty sword Gusmao 22.10.2010”

“If you are planning for a year – sow rice.

 If you are planning for a decade – plant trees.

 If you are planning for a lifetime – educate a child.”
