Historic Vessel Vega in collaboration with the East Timor Maritime Police (UPM) delivers school supplies to primary school EBF Wairoke, in the Lautém District of East Timor.
Kits 4 Kids
Our Kits-4-Kids program began in 2011 in cooperation with the Headmaster of the German European School in Singapore. The concept is simple. Students and their parents prepare schoolbags with the essentials students from a disadvantaged area need and donate them to Vega. We stow the bags on board and deliver them along our yearly route.
Since the project began, we have delivered around 5000 Kits-4-Kids bags to underprivileged children in East Timor and Indonesia. This was made possible by teachers, parents, and students from the Australian International School, Singapore, the German European School, Singapore, and the Jakarta Intercultural School.
You can read more about some of these deliveries in the articles below, and if you would like to participate, please contact us.
You will love this little film about our deliveries of educational and medical supplies to the small island of Medang in Indonesia. We have been assisting this island for almost 10 years and the improvements are noticeable.
Deliveries to the remote villages high in the mountains of East Timor are a real challenge for our team. Meggi and Simon were the 2nd and 3rd Europeans to ever visit the school.
