Omelai School, Bobonaro District – Funding Needed

Omelai School, Bobonaro District – Funding Needed

Omelai school’s 106 students are being taught in a derelict two classroom building with no windows.  The year 1’s dirt floored shack fell down last year. There are no toilets.

The school needs a new building with 3 classrooms, a teachers’ room, storage room, 5 toilets and hand-washing facilities.   

The cost of this project will be US$66,000.  East Timor Roofing is providing their high quality roofing steel and trusses, guttering and water tank at half the normal price.

The school is in a remote mountain village a 7 hour drive from Dili and is only accessible by road for half of the year.  We have a 4 month window from May, when the weather will allow us access to build the new school. Our goal is to raise the necessary money before then so we can build Omelai’s children a new school and toilets this yea
