Solidarity Volunteering: Strong Relationships, Mutual Development

Maria’s Story

Since the Australian organisations like Palms, FPET and Connect East Timor gave their support and help to us so that we can work with them, we are very grateful to them.

Connect East Timor

The audacious goal of equipping some 489 villages with simple two-way radio technology (similar to what has been used for years in remote homesteads and communities in Australia for School of the Air and the Flying Doctor) drew the support of most people and organisations who heard the CET ‘story’.


If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But, if you have come
because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together. - Lilla Watson
