In May 2009, Be Kids commenced our work in Timor-Leste by conducting a fact-gathering visit. Generous assistance was provided by Friends and Partners of East Timor (FPET), an organisation funded through the Gap Parish in Queensland. Limanaro is a small village several hours drive from Dili. The community faces a number of issues including health, lack of educational supplies and an absence of amenities and facilities. Villages like Limanaro do not enjoy the largesse of donations from usual charities.
