In Timor-Leste, many families are too poor to invest in their child’s education. The combined cost of books, stationary, uniform, transport and school fees are prohibitive yet education is key to many of the nation’s development needs. By upskilling the next generation with the opportunity to go to school or university, the path is laid for a brighter future of youth engagement and employability.
A scholarship fund is a means to this end. Grants for secondary, tertiary and vocational education are upskilling locals to build the capacity of communities throughout all districts of the island nation.
Key Areas of Expenditure:
- Secondary education scholarships
- Tertiary education scholarships
- Vocational training scholarships
- Progress monitoring
