Unite With Mothers In Timor-Leste – Alola’s MILK Campaign

Milk Campaign, Donate Now!

The Alola Foundation (known in Timor-Leste as Fundasaun Alola) was established by Kirsty Sword Gusmao in 2001. Together with its partner organisation, Alola Australia, the Alola Foundation works to improve the lives of women and children in Timor-Leste by creating employment and improving education opportunities, promoting human rights, preserving culture and improving the maternal health and well-being of women and children. Our shared vision is Strong Women – Strong Nation.

This campaign was launched on World Breastfeeding Day in 2011 by Kirsty Sword Gusmao – founder of the Alola Foundation – along with hundreds of mothers and babies in Melbourne and Timor-Leste. It is now an annual event across both countries that celebrates the joys and challenges of breastfeeding and motherhood. All proceeds from the MILK Campaign will go to support the Alola Foundation’s development programs in Timor-Leste.

Registration is easy:
We warmly invite you to host a MILK fundraising morning tea during or around World Breastfeeding Week, 1 – 7 August. You could do this at your workplace, club, Church or with your friends and family. Every dollar counts: you can make a real difference! You can create an Everyday Hero online fundraising page, by easily setting up your own page to share widely, with or without hosting a morning tea and choosing Alola as your charity for donated funds to go to. Or you can just host your own morning tea without having to use Everyday Hero! The choice is yours! Register your interest below to find out more about how to support MILK.
