Life changing relationships

Partner: Projeto Montanha

Projeto Montanha is a non-profit organisation, headquartered in Aileu district, within the island of East Timor, working to serve the Timorese families with love, seeking their integral development.


Assistance to young people - We have several courses for young people in the project. We support children and youth during and after their studies. We offer scholarships for vocational training of young people, in addition to income generation initiatives. Today we have a fully operational high-quality restaurant and a beautiful gift shop where the youth can put into practice the many things they have learned.

Dental Clinic - We have implemented the first complete dental practice in Aileu district, where we provide dental care to the community, especially working in the prevention of oral problems in children and youth.

Stove & Oven - according to the World Health Organisation, the thick acrid smoke rising from the stoves and fires inside homes is associated with around 1.6 million deaths per year in developing countries - that's one life lost every 20 seconds to the killer in the kitchen. In this new design, the stoves and ovens are built with chimneys, which significantly reduce accidents, besides reducing the use of firewood and reducing the environmental impact.
