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.
For most of the 23,500 people living in Letefoho, their homes and schools have no water connected. Children walk long distances to collect water for their families from springs, at the expense of education. LETS thanks Norths FITNESS and all our generous supporters for raising $20,000 for our 'Walk for Water' campaign.
The revamped Letefoho High School has been officially opened by the Timor Leste Education Minister. Thanks to the generosity of so many donors, we have new water tanks, toilets, a kitchen, upgraded classrooms, new window frames and so much more. What a win for education in Letefoho!
A group of Australian adventurers got to enjoy an up-close and personal encounter with the grace and generosity of the East Timorese people on our latest Harvest Journeys tour. This is part of our mission to establish an immersion tourism program to Letefoho and beyond.
ON THIS ROCK...
Seldom does the opportunity arise to help a community realise a 20-year dream and surmount the difficulties of their war-torn past. But that is exactly what this very special project represents - an opportunity to which LETS is giving heart-felt support.
