Alola Foundation was established in 2001 to raise awareness locally and
internationally about the problem of sexual and gender based violence as
experienced by the women of East Timor. The Foundation works in direct
partnership with indigenous East Timorese women's NGOs and groups promoting the
interests of survivors of violence and their families. The name "Alola"
derives from the case of a 15 year old East Timorese girl, Juliana dos Santos,
who was brutally kidnapped in the violence of September 1999 by a militia leader
who still holds her today in Indonesian West Timor. The Director of the Alola
Foundation, Ms. Kirsty Sword-Gusmao, has been campaigning for the return of Ms.
dos Santos, whose childhood nickname is "Alola". Today the Alola
Foundation responds to a range of other needs of the women of East Timor. Our
work in the areas of education and maternal and child health reflects the Alola
Foundation's commitment to boosting the quality of life and living standards of
the women of East Timor.
Moris is the first ever fine-art school and associated community
of artists in the Democratic Republic of Timor Leste. Arte
Moris was founded in February 2003 by Swiss artist Luca Gansser, inter-cultural
art coordinator Gabriela Gansser and a group of talented East Timorese youths
who became the school’s first students of art. The
original students have now become a core group of approximately 15 senior
students who live and work at Arte Moris. In conjunction with the founders, the
seniors share responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school such as
teaching junior students, administration and organization responsibilities.
Arte Moris now provides daily tuition for over 100
junior students from age 12 upwards who study under the tutelage of Luca Gansser,
visiting international artists and senior students.

the nations and the peoples of the South. APCET has an ongoing "Justice
for East Timor" (JET) campaign which will target the "masterminds" behind
the crimes committed in East Timor from 1975 up to 1999. APCET supports
the formation of an international tribunal for East Timor by the UN; or an peoples' tribunal to deliver justice to East Timor.
The Initiatives for International Dialogue
(IID) implements its campaigns and lobby initiatives on East Timor through the Asia-Pacific Coalition for East Timor

East Timor Timor Leste has truly begun its journey towards the future, out of the ashes of its past, and one of the most resonant statements that we hear over and over again from visitors is how lucky they feel to have come and seen for themselves just how amazing it is.
The simple fact is that you cannot find what is special in Timor Leste anywhere else in the world anymore. Everywhere has been “done”, traveled, marked and in many ways spoiled. The beauty of Timor Leste now is its potential, the real chance that it has for an amazing future, without the bias of negativity found so much elsewhere.
The combination of its history, spectacular scenery - both above and below water, a culture that is remarkably individual and a people that have seen so many changes in such a short time alone makes Timor-Leste a place that will appeal to everyone in many different ways.
Isn’t it time you came and saw for yourself?! Sean Ferguson-Borrel, Sept. 2004.

Sydney, inaugural Dinner for East Timor’s Children raised more than
$40,000, as well as a pledge of paediatric equipment from Royal North
Shore Hospital, to upgrade facilities in the children’s ward of the Dili
National Hospital. Kirsty Sword Gusmão has personally experienced the dire state of East Timor’s hospital system, providing her own mattress at the birth of both her children in her adopted homeland’s major hospital. During her dinner address she spoke of the extreme shortage of trained medical staff, the lack of facilities and equipment as well as the problems associated with isolated communities and diseases such as malaria which claim many young lives. “East Timor has the highest infant and maternal mortality rate in the Asian region and one of the highest in the world - 12% of East Timorese children don't reach their fifth birthday, a figure which is 200 times higher than Australia,” she said.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation said the charity will host one major fundraising event for East Timor each year and is also looking at other fundraising initiatives to help the plight of the nation’s hospital system.

Center for Transitional Justice Prior to the ICTJ's establishment, the Center's senior staff worked closely with East Timorese in 2000 and 2001 on the establishment of the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation. In four missions to Dili, they advised the UN Transitional Administration on the development of legislation to establish the commission and worked to ensure that the commission would complement efforts to prosecute persons responsible for serious crimes. In recent months, the ICTJ has helped to develop the work plan and preparatory activities for the commission, working with a local steering committee that includes strong representation from civil society, the Church, and key political parties. The ICTJ provided technical assistance as a regulation to establish the commission was debated by East Timor's National Council in early-to-mid 2001. The regulation was passed into law in July 2001.
Centre for Eyecare Education (ICEE) Work down to facilitate access
for East Timorese to spectacles. In July 2004 the first two Timorese nurses (Joao da Cruz and Alito Soares) graduated from their training at LV Prasad Eye Institute in India and returned to Timor Leste to begin their eyecare work. They will take up their posts as eyecare nurses at facilities
within the National Health System, and serve their predominantly rural communities of Lautem and Bobonaro districts, a combined population of approximately 120,000 people. People in their communities requiring eyecare will now be able to visit a fully equipped eye clinic for eye screening and refraction services provided by trained eyecare nurses
- services which were previously unavailable. In addition, the nurses in each of the districts will undertake outreach activities and linkages with surgical services at the National Hospital.
Equipping these clinics was made possible by financial support from the US based Silverton
Foundation, and the ongoing collaboration between ICEE and the Ministry of Health in Timor Leste. The Ministry and ICEE are working together to establish a mechanism to enable necessary maintenance, repair and replacement of equipment to occur in the future. ICEE thanks the Silverton Foundation for its support of the
development of eyecare services in Timor Leste.

Kid´s Ark is a project in East Timor that is sponsored by ARMS. It runs both a preschool and community health project, and is involved in outreach programs into nearby village communities. "I would like to share with you the vision God has for the children in East Timor
gave me long ago, about having a house for children. The way He showed me this was through the story of Noah and the ark, and how He wants to use this house, the Kids’ Ark, as He used Noah’s ark (Genesis 6, 7and 8). The Ark: place of salvation, preservation for the next generation and hope for the future. God was going to bring judgment; the people in the ark will be the future - without those people, there would be no future.

Borders. At the initial stage of its existence, SOLIDAMOR was a solidarity organization for self-determination of East Timor people. The organization was established in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 14 July 1998 by several Indonesians coming from different professions, such as journalists, lawyers, clergymen, researchers, NGO activists, women activists, students, etc. Despite its relatively recent appearance, the majority of its founders and management board consisted of those who have long been involved in campaign and advocacy on East Timor in their respective organizations.
The main activity of SOLIDAMOR has been directed for the realization of free and just self-determination for East Timor people, which from 7 December 1975 had been under the Indonesian military rule. In order to achieve said objective, SOLIDAMOR launched a campaign on East Timor issue among Indonesia society. For that reason, the approach used in that campaign was Indonesia's point of view, or to "Indonesiansize" the East Timor issue that had been an international issue. This method was taken, because, as its was known to all, for the militarist New Order regime under
Soeharto, East Timor was regarded as final.
