How else are we supporting school development in Timor-Leste?
Antonio, Bernadina’s school principal, is very pleased with the assistance the school has received from ChildFund Timor-Leste and Balibo ba Oin. He advises that not only has his school received support in regards to water and sanitation, but they have also been provided with tables and chairs for students to use in the classroom. This is important, as he understands how proper facilities at school are crucial to improving children’s educational development and general wellbeing.
“To become educated, children need good teachers, libraries, tables and chairs, as well as access to clean water and decent sanitation facilities,” explains Principal Antonio.
It is clear that with the establishment of these facilities, Bernadina and her schoolmates now have a stronger foundation for healthy development.
How can you help bring teachers, supplies and clean water to children in need?
To continue funding these critical school development projects, we need your help. A rewarding way to support children’s health and education is to become a community sponsor.
Community sponsorship helps create a global community by assisting the development of a village in the countries where we work. Projects include training for teachers and healthcare workers, improving access to clean water, and providing schools with the supplies they need to deliver a quality education.
