Tetum Books for Tetum Kids

$9000 worth of books, purchased in Dili, was recently distributed to schools in Viqueque: 300 tetum dictionaries @ $20 produced by MacKillop Institute of Education, 200 tetum grammar books @ $9 written by Hull (University of Western Sydney). These books are endorsed by the East Timor Ministry of Education.

The teachers and students really appreciated books in their own language. A number of sets of short stories written in Tetum were also given to the four primary schools.
