LETS work together

DonationS so far:  $008,192



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...



How much of my money goes to the cause?

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.





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.

Please pray our friends in Timor Leste remain well and safe from the COVID-19, that has now reached their shores.

LETS help them build a better future

Our mission

LETS help them build a better future!

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.

March 2020

My recent trip to Timor Leste was as wonderful as usual, and very successful. I was met at Dili airport by Eddie de Pina and joined his family for early coffee. It was great to see him, Mary and their lovely children, Fatima, Mario and Tatiana again...
