Our team in Dili, Timor-Leste, were looking to make good use of some excess IT hardware and decided that they would like to donate the equipment to a local charity.   

They ended up donating 15 computers and 8 monitors to two local foundations in Dili - the ‘Centro Pastoral Sao Miguel Arcanjo’ and ‘Carmelitas Descalces’- who will use this equipment to begin computer training courses for local residents.  

Dan Hunter, Country Director, Timor-Leste said “It’s great to be able to give back to the communities in which we operate.  This might only seem like a small thing for us, but it makes a big difference to the local people who will be able to learn new computer skills through these foundations.”

Advisian is working hard to build strong relationships with clients and residents alike in Timor-Leste.  We recently delivered two of the country’s first Category A Environmental Impact Statements, the highest level of assessment in Timor-Leste, for TL Cement Lda.  Advisian are also currently delivering US$1.2 M (AUD$1.6M) engineering and environmental consultancy services for a FEED study for Bollore on behalf of the Timor-Leste Government, associated with a new port development in Tibar Bay.
