Kor Timor is all about job creation and training in Timor Leste. It is a central part of the Rotary Club of Kew's economic development project setting up enterprises in soap making, paper making, packaging, 2 x sewing rooms, panel beating, horticulture, organic oil pressing, and supporting traditional weaving from 9 districts. 100% of funds raised remains in Timor-Leste as each enterprise is self sustained and we provide training and expansion capital.
Through this project the 100 plus workers and their extended family are afforded over 1000 meals every day, and this has been sustained for 10 years. Kor Timor supports over 25 staff to have sustainable and meaningful employment and is now fully managed by local Timor Leste people.
Timor Leste was devastated in its bid for independence in 1999, and is slowly rebuilding from the ashes, as the world 2nd newest nation.
