Proposed by the Company of Jesus (Jesuits)

Timor – Friends of Jesus– Basic School


Enlargement of the Escola Primária Católica Amigos de Jesus (Friends of Jesus Catholic Basic School), in China Rate, East Lahane – Dili – Timor

The school has currently 6 classes, with a total of 700 students, proving that there is a lack of classrooms and other essential spaces, like a gym, a working canteen, or labs, to respond to the demands of the new official basic curriculum in Timor, which has now an extension of 9 years.

Thus, we want to make a new building, with more space and better teaching conditions that will also allow the reduction of the number of students per class, improving the quality of their learning.
