Your school has the opportunity to be involved with fundraising for the ongoing developments at Encouragement House. Through this engagement with the EH community, students learn about cultural engagement at a personal level. They experience how education shapes the future of children’s lives in Timor Leste and how their contributions can make a significant difference to the lives of others.
For schools offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma, involvement with fundraising for Encouragement House can be a part of the Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) component of your program. Through the work being done in Maliana students can participate in fundraising but perhaps more importantly see the principles of encouragement which embraces global citizenship through shared decision making, recognition, acceptance and appreciation. Encouragement House demonstrates community progress through effort, focussing on expanding strengths and changing expected outcomes through strong community empowerment.
