Timor Learning Centre

Notice: Test mode is enabled. While in test mode no live donations are processed.

Our project has been developed to establish a facility for the Timorese youth and community that develops skills, character and leadership through educational workshops, crime prevention workshops, language courses and fitness training.

The Centre focuses on building strong social foundations by bringing the community together to build relationships and respect with the aim of reducing crime, especially violence within families and communities. A large focus is on gender equality and promoting respect for women. The Centre supports and empowers members to take ownership in progressing the development of their country.

Centre staff consist of a full-time live-in Manager, Centre Assistant, English language teacher, five women in the sewing Centre and 3 volunteer teachers. There are 120 English students, and 530 gym members. All memberships are free and in return each member is responsible for undertaking volunteer work at the Centre. This has allowed for sustainability, as all members have taken ownership and pride in their facility.

In order to continue the work we need to raise funds so have added Aprons and Bags to our website. We are also asking for Donations however small from  like minded individuals and Companies.
