Through repeated violence in Timor Leste since April 2006, the communities have been displaced, traumatized and rendered homeless. The internecine nature of the conflict has fractured the social fabric creating mistrust amongst each other. Austcare intends to work with three villages in Dili creating opportunities for community interactive peace building specifically targeting youth and women. Together with community groups, Austcare will build “Neighbourhood Corners” which are spaces for community interaction.
