LO’UD is a women’s Cooperative with more than 70 members living in three communities in the Lautem District of Timor-Leste. LO’UD women speak with one voice to end poverty in their communities!
ETWA has been working with the women of LO’UD since 2004, when ETWA co-ordinated it’s first ‘Weaving Tour’. Key members of ETWA met members of the weaving groups when visiting the mountainous sub-district of Illiomar. Over the years these two groups have developed a strong relationship leading to major improvements in the lives of LO’UD women and life changing experiences for ETWA volunteers.
