During the last harvest we gifted our family a Moisture Tester.
The old method of biting the bean will continue to be used, but the tester now allows them to get a more accurate measurement.
This is another step towards making sure our farmers can always demand a fair price for their beans.

The Dominican Nuns in the Oecusse Enclave (a District of Timor-Leste) run a boarding school, a major cost to the nuns is providing school uniforms to approximately 70 school girls every year. A school uniform costs $25USD and each student is required to have two uniforms.
The Dominicans provide students with amazing opportunities & life lessons and are advocates for providing education and training to the next generation of leaders in Timor-Leste.
Wild Timor raised $5000AUD to fund school uniforms for students on the 2018 school roll. Donations are still welcome for this project as school uniforms are an ongoing need.
