Timor Leste
Timor-Leste-Picture-Teaching 350

Throughout the many years of occupation, League members found ways of providing material help (such as dried foods, cotton clothing, books, seeds to help grow vegetables, toiletries, and religious articles, such as altar cloths and vestments) to the people of Timor Leste. Since independence, our members have continued to assist where possible. Together with the Salesians, who have a means of transporting goods, we provide items such as clothing, exercise books pencils, papers, blankets, rugs, toothbrushes, etc.

The program started with 10 women and now more than 40 women can sow and fertilise in the planting season. This program has increased the self-esteem and self-reliance of the women involved.

Another project which has been supported by the League is the Saint Clare of Assisi Homecraft Centre in Turkana, Kenya, which provides young women with skills for life and employment.

Missions-Children-eating 350

Brother Frank O’Shea is the Principal of Edmund Rice Sinon Secondary School in Tanzania. His mother, Bridgie O’Shea, was a long serving member of the League and a great cook!

With support from our members, Bridgie’s Kitchen was built in 1996 and the Food Program started. Lunch is provided for every student, breakfast and dinner are also provided for all hostel students. There are currently more than 800 students at the school. Edmund Rice Sinon Secondary School is more than a school. It is a concept that is grounded in some universal values and human aspirations, including the fact that all life is sacred and the dignity of the human person is part of this principle.
