You can make a difference to people’s lives in East Timor this Christmas by making a tax-deductible donation to support the work of the Alternative Technology Association (ATA).
In the past two years, thanks to the support of the public and a generous grant from Google Australia, the ATA and our partners have installed more than 600 solar-powered lighting systems in 12 remote villages in East Timor and trained 30 village solar technicians – providing almost 4,250 people with clean, renewable light for their homes.
But our Google funding is now finished and we need your support to help us continue installing solar-powered lighting in the thousands of homes in East Timor who are not connected to the electricity grid.
Watch the video of a recent installation of 50 lights in the village of Rileu to see the profound effects that clean, renewable energy has on people’s lives.
