THE TREK HAS STARTED!
Auntie Carol Cooper has been a strong advocate for our work in Timor and every Trek for Timor Blue Mountains she has welcomed us to her country – Darug and Gundungurra land – and wished the walkers a safe walk in the country of her ancestors.
The Blue Mountains Trek for Timor is a biennial trekking event held to raise funds for crucial education and development projects in Timor Leste. The last event held was on 25th August 2018. But Trek for Timor 2020 has been thwarted by fires, storms and finally COVID-19 so there is no way we can safely organise a physical trek this year.
The good news is that we are hosting a Virtual Trek so you can participate from wherever you like and continue to support our wonderful projects in Timor. Registration costs $50 (or $30 concession).
More information on the Virtual Trek can be found HERE.
If you’d like to sponsor someone who is walking in the Virtual Trek, click HERE and select their name from the drop-down box.

Without this fundraising event there will be a significant funding gap that we need to manage.
Feel free to check out what the funds from 2018 were used for HERE. Our work in Timor is extremely valuable and it is valued. We are inspired, energised and buoyed to continue our important work there, within Hatobuilico and in other parts of the country.
