Make a lasting impact in Timor with a lifetime gift

June’s Gift

As a school-teacher June understood the impact education makes on young people. Although retired, she continued to help children learn by volunteering at the local primary school. During this time, she developed a relationship with our Timor Mission Coordinator and became aware that the children in Timor-Leste do not have the same opportunities as those in Australia.

June wanted to be an instrument of change for these children. She believed in our work to ensure young children can continue their education and go to school to realise their dreams of a better future. Her generous act of leaving a Gift in her Will for the education of the children in the Carmelite schools (Zumalai) was born from her understanding that poverty impacts the choices children have in developing countries. 

June’s Gift will help ensure more learning opportunities and equality to those that need it most in Timor-Leste, the next generation of young minds.
