Casa Vida, or “House of Life”, was opened in 2008 to provide care for girls 3 – 18 years who have been sexually abused. Although it’s located in Dili, Casa Vida cares for girls from all over Timor-Leste.
In addition to providing a safe home, counseling and education, Casa Vida also provides vocational training to assist the girls to transition from schooling to employment.
The vocational programs include a bakery, café and handicrafts business.
Many Threads Project is very proud to be able to assist these wonderful young women on their journey by sharing their bookmarks and hair accessories with you.
