LETS work together
MY MONTH IN TIMOR LESTE
AS A VOLUNTEER TEACHER
By Olivia Fenlon, LNS Parishioner
Every year I volunteer my skills, services and time to a foreign country as part of my holiday abroad. In July and August 2019, I spent just over a month in Timor Leste...
Everyone who works for LETS is a volunteer. We receive no benefit other than the joy of knowing that our projects makes such a difference.
It makes a world of difference to these remarkable people of Letefoho. They are so capable of doing so much with so little!
Aside from a very small amount of money which goes to unavoidable fees to third party service providers (such as online payments fees), all money donated goes directly, 100%, to the cause.
STUDENT BOARDING HOUSE
Our Major Project for 2019
Most homes in Letefoho have only one light. Children collect water and wood for their families at the expense of study and school. Many live far from school. Help us to improve educational opportunities for these students.
LETS is a non profit group of volunteers from the Catholic Parish of the Lower North Shore in Sydney. Through our charity and fundraising efforts, we are working hand in hand with the people of the Parish of Letefoho in East Timor to help build a brighter future for their community. Our support is focused on co-operative efforts to rebuild the foundations of a viable, thriving, self-sustaining community - organization of clean water, sanitation, education, local industry and communications.
for the people of Letefoho, lets make a difference.
Students for 2020 sponsorship will be known soon!
LETS Senior High School student sponsorship for 2019 received an amazing response! Sincere thanks to the wonderful Parishioners of Lower North Shore Parish, who most generously sponsored 120 students last year. The chosen students are the poorest, but keenest & hardest working students, attending the Letefoho High School. $240 covers school fees and uniforms for 1 year.
