Los Palos School

Completed 2012 – US$75,000 New 3 Classroom School Building and Refurbishment of 7 Existing Classrooms

Lospalos is a city of 28,000 people 7 hours drive from Dili.   The primary school was at breaking point with only 7 broken down classrooms to school 848 students. Even with teachers running 3 shifts a day many children were only receiving an hour of schooling a day.

In 2012 Spend it Well, in partnership with the Office of Kirsty Sword Gusmão, built a new 3 classroom building and refurbished the existing 7 classroom
