Congratulations to Soroptimist International Joondalup for their East Timor '24 project

The East Timor '24 Project The aim of this project is to bring two qualified professional young women, Pascoela Bareta and Maria Guterres, from Dili in East Timor to Perth for a educational skills transfer visit, where they will visit hospitals, cancer treatment clinics, libraries and educational facilities to observe modern practices, the learnings gained from the educational visit will empower them to increase their potential and to improve the lives of women and children in East Timor.  These young women are already leaders in their communities, one in the field of education and the diagnosis of cancer in women and the other in inclusive library management and the implementation of education scholarships,  by expanding their knowledge, and observing modern methods and ideas, they will take these learnings back to East Timor to improve their own practices and empower the knowledge to others.
