East Timor is Australia’s closest neighbour, just 718 kilometres and one and a half hour’s flight north of Darwin. It became an independent nation in 2002 after decades of war and genocide and is now rebuilding its infrastructure.
ACU has been assisting with capacity-building projects in East Timor. Programs are only made possible by, and continually require assistance from, private donors. So if you are interested in getting involved please contact us.
The programs we run include:
Future in Youth, which provides leadership and life skills to the youth of Baucau through a soccer coaching program. This is run by the ACU School of Exercise Science.
