For the 23,500 people in Letefoho, most homes have only one light globe. Children collect water and wood for their families at the expense of study and school attendance. Help us to improve educational and life opportunities for these children by 'Legging it for Letefoho'!

LETS work together
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.
"It was a life changing experience" - the words of a participant on the LETS 2016 Immersion to Timor Leste. LETS, in partnership with Catholic Mission, is organising an Immersion to Timor Leste from 4-12 June 2017. This is the opportunity to change your own life while supporting these remarkable people to change theirs.
LETS has introduced a program to sponsor the 32 poorest, but hardest working students to attend the Letefoho High School. The cost is $220 per student, covering school fees and two uniforms. If you would like to Sponsor a Student for this year, please Contact us or consider Donating here. Find out more about our educational support to Letefoho below.
When two Australian renewable energy industry gurus sat down to dinner just over two years ago, little did they realise their conversation would spark a chain of events leading to a Solar Power Installation for Letefoho Senior Highschool. The benefits will extend beyond the classroom, with unlimited potential.
