Encouragement House(EH) provides safe, secure and supervised dormitory accommodation for remote rural students, so they can attend high school.

EH teaches many aspects of life skills including better health, basic computing, organised sports, music and confidence building to prepare students from small rural villages to enter this fast-changing modern world. Many Timorese students from Encouragement House have continued to tertiary studies leading to exciting job opportunities.
