Be a friend of Soibada

Through friendship lives are changed

What is
Friends of Soibada?

Our mission is to build a supportive relationship with Soibada, a small region in remote Timor Leste. First and foremost we aim to be the bridge that links two communities, Soibada and the Northern Beaches of Sydney. With the solidification of a firm friendship between these two communities, Friends of Soibada has been able to support the Soibada community in many areas, including but not limited to: health and medical, education and teaching, arts and crafts, and infrastructure and community planning. 

To continue our mission we need your help!


Friends of Soibada has many plans for future efforts to support the community of Soibada. We depend entirely on donations from the local community.

Volunteer Story - Peta

'As a {non-practising} registered Clinical Nurse Specialist in Critical Care, a semi-professional freelance photographer and a mother of two young children, I found myself in 2012 asking what more I could be doing with my qualifications. Little did I know the answer was on my doorstep.  

Both my children attend the local Catholic Primary School of Maria Regina in Avalon, along with Tamara Sloper-Harding’s children.  It took only a quick query about how I could utilise my skills to be of assistance, before I knew that being a part of Pittwater Friends of Soibada was an avenue worth pursuing.'

Navigate to our contact page to fill out the form to let us know that you are interested in volunteering.
