TL Projects

Please support TLV (below) – another great organisation helping TL.


Timor Leste Vision is an NGO based in Perth, working in partnership with the people of Timor Leste to support & strengthen local communities. TLV’s current project is to provide water & sanitation to the village of Funar, which has 2 schools & approx 1790 people. Funar’s only water source is a 7km walk away. The 2 main stages of work for the project are: Stage 1: Water System Repairs & Delivery Stage 2: Sanitation For more information please contact us or

Please join the Timor Leste Vision team on 17 Feb in Northbridge at 6pm for their ‘HIDDEN FIGURES’ Movie Night. ‘Hidden Figures’ is a film about three brilliant African-American women at NASA who serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit.

Tickets are only $20.00 & can be purchased here

All profits go to the Funar Water and Sanitation Project. Contact Joanne on 0407195555 or


C33 is full – & the Packing Crew are keen to see it shipped & start loading C34. With no space at our site for another container, we’re at a standstill – & our storage, again, is at capacity. So, PLEASE – no more donations until C34 arrives. Last Saturday the Crew were inundated again – & while they greatly appreciate the project support – THERE’S NO SPACE LEFT!

Footings completed for the new cottage
Footings underway for the short stay cottage


Meanwhile, Peter is never short of a project in Dili & has begun work on a short-stay accomodation cottage that you can all book into when next you visit TL.

Apart from containers, Peter will now be an in-country support base for community projects and Leavers groups etc. Sounds like an ideal plan! Peter has really inspired the young Leavers he has worked with to date.
