East Timor Religious Outreach Scholarship Appeal

June 14, 2017 | by

East Timor Religious Outreach (ETRO) contributes to Timorese self-determination and development on the micro-level by providing educational opportunities to poor, deserving youth and young adults. Last year, ETRO was able to award $5,000 for educational scholarships to each of California-Nevada Conference's ecumenical partners:  the Protestant Church in East Timor (Igreja Protestante iha Timor Lorosae) headquartered in the capital city of Dili, and the Roman Catholic Salesian Sisters Vocational School for Girls located in the rural mountain village of Venilale and also now in Dili.
