I have a sponsor! Another child sponsored in the Creating Leaders Scholarship Program


Caetano 3Thanks to a generous donor, another child has a sponsor in the Creating Leaders Scholarship Program.

Caetano is one of our youngest students and in August he celebrated his 11th birthday. He lives in Bebonuk with his three siblings and mother who works as a housekeeper and father who works as a gardener.

His favourite subject at school is Mathematics as he enjoys problem solving and his hobbies include playing football and marbles. When he is older he hopes to become a teacher.

Caetano enjoys gathering with the other Creating Leaders students and is very excited about the opening of the Gerard Centre, a building within the Embassy compound where we are establishing a resource centre for the students. He would like it to have a library and resources he can use for study.

Thank you to Caetano’s sponsor!

Sponsoring a Child in the Creating Leaders Scholarship Program costs $70 a month.

More about Creating Leaders:

Creating Leaders is an Order of Malta scholarship program in Timor-Leste. Like many developing countries, Timor-Leste has high levels of poverty and low national human development. Education is an important vehicle to employment, independence, social and political empowerment and consequently, national development. However, a cycle of poverty often creates barriers to the children’s participation in education.

The Scholarship supports underprivileged children to participate in formal continuing education.
