Jan and kids

My 2014 trip to Timor Lestè was again very busy. It is very rewarding for me to be able to meet with these people, who always welcome me with such friendship.

Meeting the two children who were selected as the first ‘Across the Timor Sea’ scholarship recipients, overwhelmingly confirmed the benefits of the sponsorship support program.

Seeing how they have grown in confidence and blossomed, confirmed my resolve to proceed. I was able to see where the goals set out by ‘Across the Timor Sea’ have had such an impact. Although St Francis of Assisi is a relatively small school, the care and guidance the children receive from the dedicated Fathers and Sisters is evident in their demeanour.
