ETWA works with a range of partners in Australia and Timor-Leste in support of our collectives aims.


As a small organisation managed solely by volunteers, our partners are a critical to the work we do. They make the load lighter by giving us tangible support when we need it and saving us money through sponsorship and discounts, which helps us stretch our funds further.
And most importantly, our partners help us have greater impact in Timor-Leste. Most of the projects on our projects pages have been delivered in partnership with other organisations and individuals. Our shared, can-do values are at the core of our development practice.
