WithOnePlanet provides opportunities for Australian schools to connect and engage with school communities in Timor Leste and build mutually beneficial two-way relationships. This engagement can be explored through the use of communications technology and/or through student/teacher travel programs to Timor Leste, staying in villages and exploring local culture.

In primary and lower secondary school years, schools can connect through technology such as e-books and e-pals and through cultural story sharing activities. In upper secondary school, connections can be made using technology and also through the WithOnePlanet exchange programs.

It was an incredible experience … getting to be with these people is enough motivation to walk up any mountain.
