Our volunteers

Many Hands has welcomed many volunteers from other countries who have supported and led a diverse range of activities in Timor since we began active programs in 2010.  We thank them for their very valued contributions, sharing their skills, expertise and experience with our staff and community members in Lautem and AInaro districts and Dili. We've also hosted many artists, arts therapists and arts workers. Find out more about ther contributions here.
