Working in partnership with Comunidade Edmund Rice (CER), the Christian Brothers ministry in Timor Leste, TTN supports a range of special projects and initiatives in the key sectors of health, education and sustainable economic development.
Programs and projects are undertaken at the community level in the mountains beyond Dili, in partnership with the men, women and children of rural communities. Initiatives are chosen that will make a real difference to the people as they seek to build futures of hope and opportunity for their families.
TTN was formed in 2006 by a group of parents whose sons had been involved in the Terrace Year 10 Timor Leste Immersion of 2004 and 2005. The experience of travelling in Timor Leste, meeting the people and seeing the enormous day-to-day challenges they faced, had a profound impact not only on them but also on their families.
