Accommodation available at the Bakhita Centre, in the mountainous district of Ermera, Timor-Leste
The Bakhita Centre is a local Community Centre owned and operated by the local Timorese people. It grew out of a belief held by a group of young Timorese people who wanted to restore dignity to their old people after the Indonesians left Timor-Leste in 1999.
Today the Bakhita Centre is a thriving Community Centre thanks to the generosity and good will of many people from Australia and a number of other countries as well as the hard work and dedication of the local Timorese.
Come and experience the richness this Community Centre has to offer. It is located in the village of Eraulo in the Ermera District, approximately 2.5 hours’ drive into the mountains south west of Dili. While the roads need a lot of attention the scenery is breathtaking as you climb to around 1300m.
