Timor Leste 2013 - Casa Vida Home

Casa Vida Children's Home

Casa Vida was established in 2008 and is committed to the protection, welfare and rights of children in Timor-Leste.

The Casa Vida residential program includes 5 rented homes caring for more than 80 children and young people. The objective of the construction project was to build the first of 4 purpose built homes for 15 to 18 people.

We had 5 separate short term teams in 2013 and one in early 2014. The teams undertook different stages of the children’s home and we officially opened in April 2014

Stage 1. Plumbing and pouring slab (April team 2013)
Stage 2. Frames and roofing (June Team 2013)
Stage 3. Building to “lock up” (July Team 2013)
Stage 4. Internal Fit Out (September 2013)
Stage 5. Bathrooms, Kitchen, Amenities (Contractors)
Stage 6. Sanitation, Water and external painting (February 2014)
Stage 7. Septic System and Water tank (April 2014)
