Alola Foundation

Alola logoACAL acknowledges the work done by the Alola Foundation in Timor-Leste. Alola Foundation was founded in 2001 by Ms Kirsty Sword Gusmão with a commitment to improve the lives of women and children in Timor-Leste. Alola was originally created to raise awareness of the widespread sexual violence against women and girls in Timor-Leste during the militia attacks in 1999. Since then Alola opened opportunities for women and their families through a wide variety of programs that assist and support women and children of Timor-Leste.

The mission for Alola is Feto Forte Nasaun Forte - Strong Women, Strong Nation. ACAL is pleased to welcome HE. Kirsty Sword Gusmão, Chairwoman of the Alola Foundation as a keynote speaker.
