East Timor: Portuguese town councils support school rebuilding
Dili, Oct. 4 (Lusa) - A dozen small Portuguese towns are funding a project to rebuild schools in East Timor and the latest establishment to be rehabilitated was opened this week.
The primary school at Cairui, in the district of Manatuto, was inaugurated Tuesday after being rehabilitated and re-equipped in a scheme worth USD 15,000.
The nationwide project was the brainchild of a Portuguese teacher, Rosa Menezes, in Timor since 2003 and currently an adviser to Dili's education minister.
