Making An Impact
Carmel Impact is a Christian charity established by The Carmelites of Australia and Timor-Leste dedicated to transforming lives and helping to build communities in East Timor – one of the poorest countries in the world. We drive this change together with the help of our supporters around the globe.
Since 2001, with a focus on education, youth engagement and leadership development, our aim has been to create lasting, positive change in Timor-Leste (East Timor). Carmel Impact is proud to build on the Carmelites’ legacy in the region, drawing on experience and a wealth of local knowledge. This long-term commitment has built strong relationships with local Timorese communities. Carmel Impact’s community building programs are designed to provide the people of Timor-Leste with the same fundamental human rights all people deserve.
