Dili International School has a strong commitment to supporting the people of Timor Leste. We achieve this through various methods.
Pantai Kelapa community
Assistance with electricity, water and out of hours use of facilities is provided to local families. Where possible we try and recruit employees from the local community.
Programa Fini Moris
Our major ongoing community activity is the provision of a community educational program for the children of our local community. The program is headed by a former employee and staffed by our Timorese teacher assistants who utilize the skills they have learned from DIS expatriate teachers to conduct classes using International standard teaching practices. The program is supervised/overseen by a qualified primary teacher.
The wider community
Collections of food and essential items from the school community are conducted annually and distributed to the districts.
