A small village in the remote part of East Timor called Dato Rua now has running water for the first time, all thanks the generosity of Beaconhills College families.

Last year our College raised around $35,000 through church services, sausage sizzles and the inaugural Family Fun Night on 15 November 2019. The much-needed funds went to the water project Dato Rua, one of the villages that our Year 10 Beacon Explorers students visit each year. Now the East Timorese school children have access to flushing toilets, instead of 180 children sharing just one drop toilet.

The project involved building pipes from a spring 5km from the town and construction of a water storage tank.
