Health and Education has always been a focus and priority for Across the Timor Sea, so when the water pumps were installed in Ailalec Village, we were delighted to see the development of family gardens flourishing there.

On her visit to St Francis of Assisi School, Jan was taken to see the School Garden.
The students are justifiably proud of their garden, and what they produce.
~ All watered by bucket!

Recently, FR. Nico (Principal) sent Jan further photographs of the St Francis of Assisi school garden.
The difference is remarkable. The students have gained such rewards for their hard work.

This knowledge and enthusiasm will make a difference when they return to their home villages.
