Spend it Well
Spend it Well’s Rural School’s Development Program is helping to address the chronic lack of school infrastructure by constructing school buildings in overcrowded or falling down govt primary schools in remote villages.
It works in partnership with the office of HE Kirsty Sword Gusmao and the Timor-Leste Ministry of Education and has completed projects in Ostico, Festau, Macalaco and Maucale villages in the Baucau region and in Lospalos.
The Timor-Leste government continues running the schools and Spend it Well puts in place supporting programs such as teacher training, providing school supplies and setting up school gardens. Spend it Well’s administrative costs are separately funded so 100% of donations go to the projects.
