Desks & Chairs for East Timor Schools
Schools in Timor Leste are severely under-resourced & typically, have little or no furniture for students. This means students normally have to sit on the ground & write on their laps all of which contributes to a poor educational environment with poor outcomes. 10,000 children are finding it easier now.
For some time now, we have been collecting donated desks & chairs from schools all over Melbourne to send to Timor.
We recently passed the 2000 mark for desks & have sent up over 10,000 chairs. That adds up to a lot of children who are finding school just that little bit easier now.
