Domestic Violence Safe Houses Drive

The Problem

Our wish is to help the women and children that have been victims of domestic violence who are now residing in the safe houses of Dili, Timor-Leste. We want to provide them with the much-needed toiletries and underclothes, as when they left their homes to escape to the safe houses, they had to leave with only the clothes they are wearing.

Our Plan

Prior to our winter break, we asked school families to bring back any toiletries from hotels that they were traveling to, and to purchase underwear for children and women. We collected them between January, when our school started back, and mid-February. We delivered them to the cafe that the safe houses run.
