The TLC Sponsorship Program is a practical and effective way to support families and children in Timor Leste.
The sponsorship program exists to support several registered non-governmental organisations (NGO's) and ministries in Timor Leste, all with a shared vision to build the capacities and resources of individuals, households, and communities so that children are able to enjoy the fullness of life that God intends.
Our Timorese partners work closely with all members of the community to identify the barriers to child well-being and create suitable programs to address these needs.
Our mission is to work together as partners to serve into the following areas:
- Family and Children's services
- Healthcare and Educational Development
- Community Development
- Faith Community Support
Sponsor's contributions help support critical development work in the communities where our partner groups are working, including improved health, better education opportunities, pre and post natal health care, long term accommodation for children at risk and other community development projects (eg. safe drinking water and sanitation).
The feedback from our partner groups is that long term, dependable financial support allows for better planned and more flexible programs.
Sponsors receive regular progress updates from their sponsored project and are able to connect with project members via letters, photos and gifts and regular opportunites are available each year to visit the projects in person.
