With Maryanne Nolan.
Ahisaun, a Timorese NGO working to improve the lives of persons with a disability in Timor Leste, has hosted some generous Year 8 students from Dili International School this past week. The students helped to repair and revive Ahisaun’s facilities.
Students first visited Ahisaun in early November to scope what they could contribute and work started in early December. With eight tasks now finished (and some chickens on their way!), Ahisaun will host an official launch of the new and improved centre in January.
Palms participant Maryanne Nolan worked with students and Ahisaun staff to make this project a reality. Here are some of the exciting changes at Ahisaun.
Maryanne has been working with Ahisaun since August as an Administration Mentor. She has been developing Ahisaun’s local partnerships to achieve financial and operational sustainability. You can support these local partnerships by becoming a regular donor to this project.
