The kids from the local area normally have to walk two hours each way along a busy main road to school. The kids are as young as three.

The local Belumahatu kids school blew down from wind and rain.

We have built a small coffee storage and sleeping hut which we turned into their new school. By night its our sleeping area and coffee storage and the next day a small pre school.

We are currently building a new school with three classrooms and a more sturdy permanent structure.

Many serious diseases that the Timorese face today are due to unsafe or inadequate supplies of running water. The World Health Organisation recommends 20 litres of safe water per day for proper health and hygiene.

Daily, water is ferried kilometres by the women and children who could be working or at school.

Wild Timor’s mission is to provide access to year round clean water to the people of Belumhato.
