Our Supporters

Thank you for making our life transforming programming possible!

Ba Futuru is able to transform the lives of so many Timorese through the contribution of many individuals and organizations both in Timor-Leste and globally.

Ba Futuru receives funding from individuals, foundations, government grants (both the Government of Timor-Leste and foreign governments), and United Nations agencies, as well as getting support through service fees, and corporate partnerships and sponsorship. The majority of Ba Futuru’s funds come from project grants from philanthropic foundations, and bilateral and multilateral donors.  In recent years Ba Futuru has begun diversifying to increase sustainability including through training, community theater, radio and film production on a fee-for-service basis.

There are more individuals that need our conflict prevention and educational programming than we currently serve, and thus we require additional support.  Please consider:

  1. donating today, or
  2. volunteering with Ba Futuru (in Timor-Leste or by supporting us from your home country).
