CHRISTMAS GIFT CERTIFICATES
How often do you receive one or more presents that you never use or find it difficult to buy for that someone who has everything?
Alola can help stop the clutter and end the waste, by offering you the chance to give a gift that matters - one that supports the women and children of Timor-Leste.
Alola Australia in partnership with Fundasaun Alola, offer a range of Gift Certificates. Your gift will support the development programs of Fundasaun Alola in Timor-Leste, established in 2001 by Kirsty Sword Gusmão. Fundasaun Alola's programs improve child and maternal health, create employment opportunities, promote human rights, strengthen community participation in economic and social development and enhance the status of women in Timor-Leste.
NEW: WOMEN'S ADVOCACY GIFT CERTIFICATE
Your gift of $AU50 will assist Fundasaun Alola's Women's Resource Centre to campaign for women's rights in Timor-Leste, both within local communities and with key decision-makers. This includes continuing to deliver a Leadership Training Program with women. Your gift will also assist Fundasaun Alola in awareness-raising activities and creating submissions that affect women most, including gender-based violence and human-trafficking.
For $AU25, your gift will support the maternal and child health program
Money raised from these certificates will support Alola's maternal and child health program that includes providing breastfeeding information and counselling, infant and young child feeding training, maternity packs, and research on maternal mortality in Timor.
Your $AU50 gift will give a Timorese woman the opportunity of economic independence, to work and feed her family and to contribute to the development of her country.
Money raised through Alola Livelihood Gift Certificates provides tools, materials and support that enable women to earn a living in the textile trade, primarily sewing or weaving.
Not only does this help women support their families, it also gives something equally important - hope.
For $AU75, your gift will support a year's education for a young Timorese student.
The Alola Foundation Scholarship Program addresses some of the economic and cultural barriers preventing students in Timor-Leste from completing their education - particularly girls and those in rural areas. Your gift will provide a 12-month scholarship to a young Timorese student.
For $AU10, your gift will support a pack of 8 Tetum readers being given to a school in Timor-Leste.
This year there are two varieties of the Reader Certificate. This certificate is perfect for all those Kris Kringle Gift opportunities.
